Surprise! These Professionals Study Anatomy & Physiology

When you think of students in an Anatomy & Physiology class, do you picture future doctors and nurses? Or emergency medical technicians (EMTs)? You might be surprised to learn about less-obvious professionals who also study these topics.

Tattoo artists. Several states require that tattoo artists complete Anatomy & Physiology classes to become licensed. It makes sense if you think about it. A tattoo artist should understand the parts of the body when they’re putting needles into people!

Artists. Anatomy & Physiology is particularly important for sculptors who want to craft realistic human figures. This class can also be useful for artists painting the human body. Fun fact: Leonardo da Vinci and Michaelangelo performed dissections to gain anatomical knowledge that would improve their work.

Medical illustrators. These professional artists typically have a master’s degree in medical illustration. The curriculum includes classes in anatomy, physiology, and other sciences. You can see their artwork in books, journals, animations, and computer simulations.

Medical test writers. Professionals writing questions for the MCAT, United States Medical Licensing Examination®, and medical recertification exams must have in-depth knowledge of the human body.

Fitness professionals. You can’t help clients strengthen and tone their muscles if you don’t know how muscles work.

Attorneys. Not all attorneys would need a course in Anatomy & Physiology. However, for those handling medical malpractice, auto accident, or workers’ compensation cases, an understanding of these subjects is important.
