Dr. Sibold is a faculty member in Rehabilitation & Movement Science at UVM. He is a nationally-certified athletic trainer, and his doctoral training is in Exercise & Sport Psychology. He has practiced in the field of sports medicine in both clinical and athletic settings since 1996, and has taught a wide range of students, including both undergraduate and graduate students in exercise science, athletic training, psychology, physical therapy, and neuroscience. His current research explores the effects of exercise on stress, anxiety, and brain plasticity in both animal and human models. Most recently, Dr. Sibold was awarded the UVM Kroepsch-Maurice Excellence in Teaching Award in November 2012.
This course is for students interested in entering the health profession as a doctor, nurse, physical therapist, nutritionist, athletic trainer, and more. Understanding basic human anatomy and physiology is the foundation for those interested in health and/or healthcare careers. Classroom teaching supplemented with pathology laboratory tours, hospital tours, simulation labs and more. Understanding the body and the way it works is important information for those interested in healthcare, and those simply wanting to know more about their own health.
Classroom learning is supplemented with lots of hands-on learning in simulation labs, movement labs, skill labs and more. This course is not a substitute for the Anatomy & Physiology course requirements for UVM major or minor.
Students also benefit from access to the Clinical Simulation Laboratory at the University of Vermont and Fletcher Allen Health Care, where they can perform virtual surgeries, among other activities.
