Admissions Information
Ph.D. Master's International Students

Anatomy has long been considered as the basis of all the biomedical sciences (including clinical medicine). Manifestations of health and disease can be regarded as attributes of anatomical structures ranging in size from individual molecules to whole organs. The Anatomy concentration, within the Masterís Program in Medical Sciences, has been developed to provide a concentrated program of study that is designed for students interested in either future doctoral or professional programs in the biomedical sciences or healthcare and education professions. Graduates of the program will have developed expertise and experience in human gross anatomy, neuroanatomy, embryology, histology, pathology and laboratory medicine and will be able to apply these skills in a variety of educational and healthcare settings. The rigorous program allows students to demonstrate their full academic ability for future graduate programs or medical school. The anatomy program promotes the broad intellectual focus required of future graduate students in the anatomical sciences or other health-care professions by providing courses that integrate modern teaching methods with extensive student participation that are designed to improve skills which are critical to their future professional development.
