Qualifications

Minimum Qualifications for teaching college level Anatomy and/or Physiology courses:

Master's degree in anatomy and/or physiology; master's degree in biological sciences (i.e. anatomy, cell biology, biology, biomedical sciences, evolution, genetics, histology,  immunology, microbiology, molecular biology, neuroscience, pharmacology, physiology,  virology, zoology) or professional degree (M.D., D.O., D.V.M.) and 8 graduate semester hours in anatomy, physiology, and kinesiology courses related to anatomy and  physiology, embryology, cell biology, histology, organology, pathology, endocrinology, immunology, molecular biology and/or genetics; or a master's degree with 18 graduate  semester hours in anatomy and/or physiology or kinesiology courses related to anatomy and physiology or combination of 8 graduate semester hours of anatomy and/or physiology or kinesiology courses related to anatomy and physiology and 8 graduate semester hours of embryology, cell biology, histology, organology, pathology, endocrinology, immunology, molecular biology and/or genetics.

Note: Anatomy and physiology are subsets of  biology. Because the core concepts of biology apply broadly to all living organisms, a great diversity of biology courses are directly applicable to human A&P. Instructors must be prepared to integrate introductory-level chemistry and biochemistry not only with anatomy and physiology, but with a variety of other relevant topics, including cytology, cell physiology, molecular biology, histology, microbiology, immunology, embryology, and nutrition. Because of the interrelatedness of topics in biology, a course in any one of the topics above will include a significant amount of anatomy and physiology, and therefore is appropriate background for an A&P instructor.
