Anatomy & Neurobiology Track
This doctoral program includes courses in Anatomy and Neuroscience within the Medical School curriculum as well as a number of advanced courses within our department and related departments at the Medical School. This program is designed to produce well-rounded biomedical scientists who expect to include teaching and research in their career portfolio.
Students are expected to complete 6 credits from the Basic Department Required courses, 18-20 credits from the Core Track Required courses, 6 credits from the Advanced Department Seminar courses and 32-34 credits from Electives or Research.
Basic Departmental Required Courses (10 credits):
|Experimental Design and Statistical Method/ Elementary Biostatistics||2cr||GMS AN 704, GMS MS 700|
|Current Topics in Neuroanatomical & Neurobiological Sciences||2cr||GMS AN 801/802|
|Professional Skills for Students in the Biomedical Sciences||2cr||GMS AN 715|
|Vesalius Module Teaching Practicum||2cr||GMS AN 805|
|Teaching in the Biomedical Sciences||2cr||GMS AN 806|
Core Track Required Courses (18-20 credits):
Students are required to take the following two courses:
|Medical Neuroscience||4cr||GMS AN 703|
|Neuroanatomical Techniques||4cr||GMS AN 718|
Students are required to take one of the following two courses:
|Medical Histology/Microscopic Anatomy||6cr||GMS AN 700 / MS 123|
|Medical Gross Anatomy||8cr||GMS AN 701/MS 122|
Students are required to take one of the following three courses/course groups:
|Cellular and Molecular Neurobiology||2cr||GMS AN 803|
|Molecular Biology||4cr||GMS BI 782|
|Biochemistry A and B||4cr each
|GMS BI 755 and 756|
Advanced Departmental Seminar Courses (6 credits):
The student is required to take 6 credits of advanced departmental seminar courses offered by the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology. A course offered by another Department in the Division of Graduate Medical Sciences may be used to partially fulfill this requirement if it is deemed relevant to the student’s research and is approved by the Graduate Education Committee.
The student may take courses offered by the Department of Anatomy and Neurobiology and/or courses offered by other Departments on the Medical Campus to fulfill this requirement.
