M.Sc Degree in Clinical Anatomy


The Division of Clinical Anatomy in the Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology first introduced a Master's in Clinical Anatomy in September 2005. This plan of study is designed to meet the ever increasing need in North America for instructors who can teach cadaveric gross anatomy. A Master's in Clinical Anatomy will provide students with the necessary skills to teach clinically-oriented cadaveric anatomy in medical, dental and professional health science programs. This 20 month plan of study will include courses in human gross anatomy, embryology, histology, human neuroanatomy and pathology/physiology. Students will also have opportunities to attend surgeries. Experience in teaching will be gained by demonstrating and giving lectures in clinical anatomy to students of medicine, dentistry and the allied health professions. The students will be expected to complete a thesis project which may be in the areas of clinical anatomy, instructional technology or basic science research.
