The School of Medicine and School of Graduate Studies partners to offer a dual degree for the Applied Anatomy, MS and Doctor of Medicine degrees.
Students seeking advanced training in the anatomical sciences may begin the 30-hour master’s degree program in the fall or spring semester of the first year of medical school. Required graduate courses include the anatomical sciences core curriculum, completed during the first two years of medical school, and an advanced surgical anatomy course taken in the fourth year. Students earn the remaining credits through elective courses. Completion of a thesis is not required, but students may undertake independent research experiences as electives; a thesis-based program also is available. Interested medical students must apply to the master’s program through the Department of Anatomy.
