Maureen Schaefer, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor in the Division of Human Anatomy.  She primarily focuses on the teaching of Gross Anatomy in both the Colleges of Human and Osteopathic Medicine but also participates in Neuroanatomy and Histology courses.  Her current interest involves the incorporation of movement into anatomy instruction.  Her passion for martial arts, dance and physical well-being has led her to create a series of work-out videos designed to get students up and moving while reviewing anatomical content.   View her work at Knockout Anatomy.
