    My primary appointment is in the Physical Therapy Program and I have secondary appointments with the CHA/PA Program and the Dept of Cell & Developmental Biology. I teach gross human anatomy to PT, PA and MD students on the Anschutz Medical Campus.

    I'd really enjoy chatting with you, so don't hesitate to reach out. I am also reachable via my professional twitter - @mpascoe and snapchat - @AnatomySnap
