In the spirit of New York Chiropractic College's continued evolution as a multidisciplinary healthcare education institution, the College introduces the Master of Science in Human Anatomy and Physiology Instruction – the first and only program of its kind, and a program offered almost entirely online for the convenience of the prospective healthcare professional and academic audience.
Professional healthcare degree holders and biologists with graduate degrees have the foundation to teach anatomy and physiology at the undergraduate level, but often lack the instructional training, tools, and skills necessary for success in the college and university setting. The M.S. in Human Anatomy and Physiology Instruction Program is designed to build on existing anatomy and physiology competencies and transform the graduate into a highly effective instructional specialist for the undergraduate lecture hall and laboratory.
Beyond increasing the instructional skills of anatomy and physiology professors, the most significant benefit to graduates of the New York Chiropractic College Master of Science in Human Anatomy and Physiology Instruction program will be the ability to expand their career opportunities. As a result of an increasing number of allied health professional programs requiring human anatomy and physiology instruction, there is an institutional shortage of highly qualified human anatomy and physiology instructors to effectively prepare students for their careers. In addition, graduates will be better prepared to expand beyond professional practice and to pursue opportunities as full-time or adjunct instructors in undergraduate college or university settings.
