He is a President Emeritus of the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and was founding director of the HAPS Institute. He also teaches graduate courses and workshops for those who teach A&P.

Free A&P Journals

Many of these are free journals, magazines, and other publications related to teaching human anatomy & physiology. Some are not free but have free articles, abstracts, or summaries available online. Most are online publications but some also have print versions as well. I have also included free clipping services that bring updates and links to other publications.

The recommendations below have been screened to include those that are free and available for educational use. But things sometimes change. So it is up to YOU to verify cost and/or appropriate use before you use any of them.
