UW Biomechanics Curriculum:

Available course offerings for the Biomechanics Graduate Thread expose students to the basics of musculoskeletal anatomy, mechanics of materials, and experimental and computational methods in biomechanics.  The Fall Biomechanics Seminar Series provides a broad overview of the interdisciplinary biomechanics research being conducted across the UW campus.  These courses supplement the student's research experience and facilitates cross-pollination and collaboration between research groups and labs.  Additional information about each of these courses, including availability, can be found through the UW Course Description Website.
