Gross Dissection and Kinesiology of the Upper Extremity

July 8 - 11, 2015
Marquette University, Milwaukee, WI

Course description

gross anatomy pictureThis course consists of an intensive four-day anatomical dissection and kinesiological review. Even-year summers focus on the lower extremity, and odd-year summers focus on the upper extremity. The primary purpose of this course is to provide clinicians with a solid anatomical and kinesiologic basis for understanding normal and abnormal function of the musculoskeletal system. This information is essential for the development of effective treatment programs.

Breakfast and lunch included in registration fee.

 

Course objectives participants will learn

Who should attend

This course is designed for medical and/or health professionals who wish to integrate their own clinical experience with the sciences of anatomy and kinesiology. We feel that a first-hand view of the structure of the musculoskeletal system is a valuable experience for the clinician who treats and/or educates patients with limb dysfunction. This course is especially relevant to physical/occupational therapists, assistants, chiropractors, athletic trainers, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners. The encompassing functional nature of the course will provide clinical relevance to anyone who treats the upper limb of patients with orthopedic or non-orthopedic disability. For more information on course content, call Dr. Don Neumann, Course Director, at 414-288-3319.

Paul-Neil Czujko, PT, DPT, OCSPaul-Neil Czujko, PT, DPT, OCS received his BS degree in Physical Therapy from Stony Brook University in 1995. He began his career at Lenox Hill Hospital in Manhattan where he gained acute care/medical surgical experience. His strong interest in orthopedics earned him a position of senior therapist in the out-patient department. He also spent a year in the hand clinic, which fueled an interest in hand therapy. Having served as an in-service coordinator and leader of out-patient study groups, Paul-Neil has always had a strong desire to teach. He joined Stony Brook's Physical Therapy Program as an adjunct professor in 2004, and joined the faculty in 2010 as one of the Directors of Clinical Education. Paul-Neil teaches Kinesiology, a first year foundational course, and Orthopedics I and II, second year courses in the Entry-level Doctorate of Physical Therapy Program. He also participates in Case Studies I and II, case-based learning experiences after the first and second semesters of didactic work. Paul-Neil has extensive clinical experience providing physical therapy services in the private practice, out-patient setting. He is an Orthopaedic Certified Specialist through the American Board of Physical Therapy Specialties, as well as a Certified Hand Therapist through the Hand Therapy Certification Commission. Areas of interest include kinesiology, manual physical therapy, and sports medicine. Being an avid runner, Paul-Neil’s current research area of interest is barefoot and minimalist running and is currently studying this area as part of his PhD work through Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions. Paul-Neil first attended this course in 2006 and has been a lab assistant since 2008.

Jon Marion, OTR, CHTJon Marion, OTR, CHT will be serving as a laboratory faculty member for Anatomical Dissections.  He has been serving in this capacity since 1996.  Mr. Marion received a B.S. in Occupational Therapy from the University of Minnesota in 1987.   He became certified in hand therapy in 1993.  For the past 27 years, Mr. Marion has worked extensively with the hand and upper extremity surgeons at the Marshfield Clinic, providing and coordinating care for patients with upper extremity injuries in both hospital and outpatient settings.  In addition to his clinical experience, he has previous numerous cadaveric dissection in-services throughout the years to regional OT and PT staff.  Mr. Marion is a member of the American Society of Hand Therapists, and has authored or co-authored articles in the Am Journal of Arthroscopy, OT Week, OT Advance and the Medical Problems of Performing Arts Journal.
