Anatomy - Course Work

During the first year of the Anatomy Graduate Program, incoming students focus on required anatomical courses including Human Gross Anatomy, Human Embryology, Human Microscopic Anatomy (histology), and Human Neurobiology. During the second year, students complete 6 credits of  requisite graduate core curriculum, electives, research-related activities and professional development courses. Upper class anatomy students have a unique opportunity to be involved in the teaching gross anatomy to physician assistant and medical students, or clinicians.

Doctoral students are required to complete: ANAT 503 (Human Gross Anatomy), ANAT 512 (Human Embryology), ANAT 505  (Microscopic Anatomy I), ANAT 506 (Microscopic Anatomy II), NEURO 511 (Human Neurobiology),
BMS 579C/D (Principles of Biomedical Research), PHS 500 (Ethics), ANAT 602 (Mentored Teaching), and electives. Master of Science students are required to complete: ANAT 503 (Human Gross Anatomy), ANAT 512 (Human Embryology), ANAT 505 (Microscopic Anatomy I), ANAT 506 (Microscopic Anatomy II), ANAT 600 (Laboratory Research), PHS 500 (Ethics), and electives. The MS degree requires completion of 30 credits (18 at the 500 level or higher), hypothesis-driven laboratory-based research project, and final GPA of 3.0 or higher.
