Program Description:

The anatomy certificate program is a two-semester, post-baccalaureate program. The program provides graduate-level education in human anatomy through the required Human Gross Anatomy course. Students fulfill the required 12 credit hours from the following courses related to the anatomical discipline – Human Microanatomy, Human Embryology, Human Neurobiology and Medical Cell Biology and Physiology.

The program is applicable to physical therapists, occupational therapists, physician assistants, athletic trainers, health and physical education majors and others in allied health disciplines. The intensive course work requires a full-time commitment.

Admissions Requirements:

Applicants for admission are expected to meet the general requirements for admission to the Graduate School with regular or nondegree status. Students must complete Human Gross Anatomy (required), along with a combination of electives (Human Microanatomy, Human Embryology, Human Neurobiology and Medical Cell Biology and Physiology) with a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above to earn a certificate.
