The Functional Anatomy for Movement and Injuries (FAMI) Workshop is a four-day immersion course in anatomy and injuries for movement professionals. Held in a medical school, the course brings the best of medical education to the movement world, including Gross Anatomy labs and physician-led lectures. Gain hands-on experience with cadaver prosections – see the spinal cord, touch the inside of a shoulder joint, feel a knee replacement, understand the pelvic floor – and get your questions answered by top anatomists and physicians.

 

The FAMI Workshop is designed to help you master the human body so you can better help your clients. The curriculum takes participants on a head-to-journey of the body, focusing on a specific body region and including the following elements each day.

Foundation Lectures

Lead by anatomists, these lectures are held at the beginning of each day and orient the student to the particular musculoskeletal and nervous system anatomy of the day’s body region.

Clinical Perspective Lectures

Lead by orthopedists, neurologists and sports-medicine physicians on our clinical faculty, these sessions shed light on many common injuries affecting the day’s body region: demystifying what happens to the body, why it happens, and how the injury should be treated.

Gross Anatomy Laboratory Sessions

For three hours each day, participants learn anatomy in 3-D in the Gross Anatomy lab. In small groups, participants explore prosections (regions of cadavers that have been meticulously dissected to demonstrate intricate details of anatomy) and engage in discussions lead by anatomy faculty.

Rehab Perspective Lectures

Led by physical therapists, these lectures link knowledge gleaned during the day to movement and client scenarios–offering a beginning exploration into the anatomy behind injury prevention and rehabilitation principles.

Radiology Sessions

These sessions give the fitness professional an overview of radiologic modalities – what they are, how they work and why they are used. Participants also learn how to read images, identifying the normal from the not-so-normal.
