  • Courses

    • ANAT. 700 - Fundamentals of Gross Anatomy. A study of the human body with an emphasis on the head, neck and trunk. This course incorporates lectures and a dissection laboratory. Although listed as a Spring Semester course, a component is taught at the start of the Fall Semester. (9 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 701 - Fundamental Microscopic and Developmental Anatomy. A study of the microscopic structure and function of cells, tissues and organs. (6 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 703 - Seminar in Writing Biomedical Research Papers. Basic elements of writing, such as sentence structure, and the traditional sections of the biomedical research paper (introduction, materials and methods, results and discussion) are taught through the use of examples and exercises. (1 semester hour)
    • ANAT. 711 - Gross Anatomy. A study of the human body utilizing dissection. (12 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 713 - Histology and Cell Biology. A study of the structure and function of cells, tissues and organs. (6 semester hours, 3‐3)
    • ANAT. 715 - Neurobiology.  A study of the human nervous system. (6 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 716 - Developmental Anatomy. A study of the embryonic development of the human body. (2 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 717 - Clinical Anatomy Research Rotations. Research with up to three faculty associated with the Clinical Anatomy program. Students will be exposed to the research and methods used by individual faculty. Each rotation requires a brief paper to be written by the student. (1-9 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 722 - Topics in Contemporary Anatomy. A seminar course in which students will take turns presenting the contents of assigned scientific papers or other readings dealing with research in anatomy or related topics. (1-2 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 730 - Teaching Practicum in Gross Anatomy. Advanced students will: 1) develop skills required to teach gross anatomy to professional and graduate students in a laboratory venue and; 2) solidify his or her command of the subject. As part of the course, students will gain experience in the construction and administration of written and laboratory exams. Prerequisite: ANAT 700 or 711 or equivalent. (6 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 731 - Teaching Practicum in Histology and Cell Biology. Advanced students will 1) develop skills required to teach histology and cell biology to professional and graduate students in both a laboratory and lecture venue; and 2) solidify his or her command of the student. As part of the course, students will gain experience in the construction and administration of written and laboratory exams. Prerequisite: ANAT 701 or 713 or equivalent. (3 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 733 - Teaching Practicum in Neurobiology. This course provides the advanced student with a mechanism for 01) developing the skills necessary to teach neurobiology to professional and graduate students; and (2) solidifying his or her knowledge of neurobiology. Students receive instruction in current educational approaches, and engage in interactive learning activities with students enrolled in ANAT 615/715. Students in ANAT 733 gain experience in guiding group discussions and obtain training in content delivery in a laboratory setting. The course will prepare students to play a critical role in enabling professional students to bridge the foundations in basic science to the health-related professions. (3 semester hours)
    • ANAT. 740 - Readings in Contemporary Anatomy. A program of reading or reading and research assigned by a faculty advisor according to specific interests of the student. A written report of the work may be required of the student during or at the end of the semester. (hours and credit to be arranged)
    • ANAT 742 - Introduction to Problems in Clinical Anatomy. Students will read, discuss and give presentations about papers related to the teaching of clinical anatomy, and will attend selected grand rounds in clinical departments participating in this program. They will meet with members of the Clinical Anatomy faculty who are actively involved in research or scholarship to learn about the activities of program faculty. They also will be introduced to educational scholarship. (2 semester hours)
    • ANAT 743 - Skills Development in Clinical Anatomy I. Students will read, discuss and give presentations abut papers on the teaching of clinical anatomy. In addition, guest lecturers will give students the opportunity to learn from anatomists who are master educators. Finally, students will practice giving lectures on topics in anatomy and will have a supervised lecturing experience to a large audience (1 semester hour)
    • ANAT 744 - Skills Development in Clinical Anatomy II. Students will read, present and discuss papers on the teaching of clinical anatomy. They may also attend grand rounds in participating clinical departments and discuss their experiences in class. Finally, as a capstone experience for their research/scholarship project (ANAT 745 Clinical Anatomy Research Project), they will present a half-hour seminar describing their project to all students and participating faculty in the program. (1 semester hour)
    • ANAT 745 - Clinical Anatomy Research Project. In consultation with their mentor and the program director, the student will participate in a research/scholarship project focused in an area of clinical anatomy or anatomical education. (hours and credit to be arranged)
    • ANAT. 750 - Thesis Research Proposal. An advanced course in which master's students prepare a research proposal for their thesis research project. (1 semester hour)
    • ANAT. 760 - Dissertation Research Proposal. An advanced course in which doctoral students prepare and defend a research proposal for their dissertation research project. (1 semester hour)
    • ANAT. 790 - Thesis and Thesis Research. (1 semester hour)
