The Department of Anatomy provides cutting-edge instruction in human anatomy to medical students, graduate students, and undergraduate students and is home to international research programs in paleontology and paleobiology. Our program leading to the Master of Science degree in Applied Anatomy provides rigorous training for students who aspire to careers requiring a solid foundation in human anatomy. This curriculum is ideal for students with a range of career goals, including those who will be future teachers of anatomy or who will pursue careers in medicine or other health professions or scientific fields that involve anatomy. The MS in Applied Anatomy can be combined with the MD curriculum in a four-year joint MD-MS curriculum. This provides an enhanced background for medical students who plan to enter a surgical specialty, radiology, or another field that relies on a detailed understanding of human anatomy.
