About this course

By Dr. David Resuehr

This Course offers a logically organized, comprehensive approach to understanding the human gross anatomy of the head and neck. The study of head and neck anatomy provides a considerable intellectual challenge because the anatomy in this region deals with a large amount of very small but equally important structures. This Course consists of short and concise high yield video clips in addition to demonstrating important clinical correlations.

UAB School of Medicine

Dr. Resuehr received his Ph.D. in biology from the University of Hamburg in 2004. He then continued his research at Florida State University, where his research began with circadian rhythms and fertility and later became focused on women's reproductive health, specifically the condition endometriosis and the involvement of the endocannabinoid system in it. As both a scientist and a passionate teacher, Dr. Resuehr first took "Gross Anatomy and Embryology" at FSU and then was accepted into the Vanderbilt University "Scientist Educator Program" where he was trained in gross anatomy instruction for three years while doing research in the Ob-Gyn department on endometriosis and the involvement of the endocannabinoid system in it's aetiology. He has since taught anatomy to students of medicine and many other health science disciplines, including; physician assistant, dentistry, optometry and nursing anaesthesia. One of Dr. Resuehr's special interests are imaging techniques, specifically ultrasound, and their utility in understanding three dimensional anatomy. He is the co-creater of the first intensive week-long ultrasound special topics course for rising second year medical students at UABSOM which is taught annually since 2014. He has presented his ultrasound initiatives at a national and international meetings, and is a member of several societies that support the advancement of ultrasound in medical education. He is also Director of the Anatomy Lab Teaching Associate Course, Director of Gross Anatomy of the Head and Neck for Students of Optometry and Director of the Musculoskeletal and Skin module in the Biomedical Science Masters Program. His research interests besides ultrasound are in circadian rhythms and women's reproductive health, in didactic strategies in adult learning, including computer/web-based applications and team-based learning (TBL) activities. He has received several teaching awards, among these is the highest distinction from UAB, the President's Award for Excellence in Teaching.
