Learning the bones and bone markings of the skeleton can be an early, scary experience for A&P students. How can we prepare and support them to learn the skeleton effectively—and learn skills to help them in their continuing studies of human anatomy?

  • Bone Names (Kevin’s tip page for A&P students; located in the Lion Den website)
    • Short URL (to provide to students) is my-ap.us/bones
    • Provides a brief intro to bone naming and how that helps a student learn bones and markings
    • Provides 2 videos that walk students through the process of understanding bone names as a method of learning
    • Contains highlighted links to helpful lists
      • Lists are available as a docx or PDF “handouts” to use for study
      • Lists are also available as an interactive table on the web (can be sorted)
      • Access to lists requires a free registration in the Lion Den website
  • Skeletal Posts (from Kevin’s blog The A&P Student, includes all advice for students on studying the skeleton)
