Welcome to Penn State Anatomy Graduate Program
The Program on Education in Human Structure at Penn State's College of Medicine offers training programs leading to Masters (M.S.) or Doctoral (Ph.D.) degree in Anatomy for individuals interested in acquiring advanced training in the anatomical sciences. The Anatomy Masters Program is a two-year course of study, with an emphasis in preparing students for further professional education (e.g., medicine, dentistry and osteopathy). The Doctoral Degree provides an opportunity for students who want to pursue an academic career in the biological sciences to acquire specialty training and teaching experience.
Study in these traditional areas will be augmented by courses offered by the department of Neural and Behavioral Sciences, or by other departments within the College of Medicine. As part of the thesis requirement, each student will conduct original research under the supervision of a faculty member culminating in the oral defense of a written master's thesis. Teaching responsibilities in the anatomical sciences are required in the second year. Each student may tailor their graduate training to suit their particular interests as long as they fulfill the basic requirements for the degree; thus, students can emphasize the academic preparation, research, or teaching aspects of the program.
We welcome your interest in our program and we trust that you will share our enthusiasm for the opportunities that the Program on Education in Human Structure offers.
