Gross. Macroscopic. Microscopic. Topographical. Sounds like we are discussing geography or something, but it is really human anatomy. Anatomy is a 2000+ years old study.

Anatomy knowledge typically was through dissection, but today novel technology permits knowledge of the body without it. (1) Your New Roads chiropractor is well-trained in anatomy.

Chiropractic students’ motivation and anatomy performance were interwoven in 1 study. If they were motivated to learn, they performed better in anatomy.
