Tulane University MS in Anatomy

This is a 1-year non-thesis program of study of cadaveric dissection-based gross anatomy, embryology, cell biology and histology, and neuroscience leading to a Master of Science degree in Anatomy. It is designed specifically for candidates who plan to attend medical school, or dental school or enroll in other professional or advanced degree programs; it serves to improve credentials to compete for admission to a medical or dental school. Class size is maintained at 20 students to maximize the small-group teaching environment.

All other graduate courses are taught within the School of Medicine by full time Medical School faculty.
