    The course components are as follows:
    • Kinetic Anatomy, Fourth Edition, text
    • Study guide
    • Continuing education exam (accessed online)
    Kinetic Anatomy, Fourth Edition CE Course, gives you a firm concept of musculoskeletal anatomy by systematically assembling each component of the human body. Layer by layer, the course covers bones, ligaments, joints, and muscles as well as the nerves and blood vessels that supply these muscles that are essential for movement. With full-color visual aids and activities that invite you to apply understanding of structural anatomy, the text explores how the structural anatomy of the human body facilitates movement.

    This course includes nearly 400 photos, illustrations, and infographics to help you visualize and engage with structural anatomy. Throughout the book, Hands On exercises help you physically identify anatomical structures, and Focus On sidebars illustrate circumstances in everyday activity that relate to the specific anatomical structures in the text. Pop quizzes provide an opportunity to strengthen clinical reasoning skills by identifying the muscles shown in the accompanying photo. You will learn what structures are involved in movement and how those structures should function, enabling you to identify problems and correct them to enhance physical activity.

    Learning Objectives
    After completing this course, you will be able to do the following:
    • Identify all the bones of the human body and their anatomical landmarks.
    • Identify the ligaments and tendons that attach the bones and form the major joints of the human body.
    • Identify the major muscles of the human body, their position, and their actions.
    • Describe the fundamental movements of the human body.
    • Identify the major blood vessels and nerves of the human body.
    • Communicate using the universal language of human anatomy.
    • Apply muscular anatomy to specific training exercises of the upper and lower body and the core.

    Audience

    Robert S. Behnke, HSD, is retired after 39 years of teaching anatomy, kinesiology, physical education, and athletic training courses at the high school and university levels. Behnke has been honored on several occasions for excellence in teaching—including receiving the Caleb Mills Outstanding Teaching Award at Indiana State University and the Educator of the Year Award from the National Athletic Trainers' Association (NATA). He served 11 years as chair of the NATA Professional Education Committee. In 1990, Behnke was inducted into the NATA Hall of Fame. He is also in the Indiana State University Athletic Hall of Fame, the Illinois Athletic Trainer Hall of Fame, and the Indiana Athletic Trainer Hall of Fame.

    Behnke spent most of his career at Indiana State University (1975-1998), where he was a full professor of physical education and athletic training and director of undergraduate and graduate athletic training programs; in retirement, he holds the rank of professor emeritus. He served as head athletic trainer and an instructor at Illinois State University from 1966 to 1969. He was head athletic trainer and an assistant professor at the University of Illinois from 1969 to 1975. He was an athletic trainer for boxing, men's field hockey, team handball, ice skating, roller hockey, gymnastics, judo, and cycling at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs in 1984 and 1991.

    This broad range of experiences enabled Behnke to understand the needs of undergraduate students—and to develop an unparalleled grasp of which pedagogical approaches work and which do not.

    Jennifer Plant, EdD, is the clinical education coordinator and an instructor for the athletic training program at the University of Central Florida. Previously, Plant served as an instructor and clinical education coordinator for the athletic training education program at Charleston Southern University. During her employment, she also provided athletic training services for the women’s volleyball team, men’s and women’s cross country teams, and indoor and outdoor track and field teams. She also served as a liaison between the university’s athletic department and athletic training program.

    Plant also has experience working as an industrial athletic trainer, overseeing the medical care of distribution center employees, and has experience providing athletic training services for clinic and high school settings. Plant holds the Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) designation from the National Strength and Conditioning Association (NSCA).
