The Anatomical Sciences Co re C urriculum (ASCC) courses

emphasize the traditional asp ects of anatomical structure, function and nomenclature with critical aspects of cell and developmental biology, biochemistry, and p hysiology of cells, tissues, and organs integrated into t heir con tent . The elective courses allow curriculum flexibility for students to emphasize their diverse individual interests . The Master of Science in Applied Anatomy serves as an excellent prep aration for subsequent studies in schools of medicine, dentistry, an d nursing . The knowledge of the human body and its physiological p rocesses gained in this program forms a

significant foundation for physician as sistants, physical therapists, dental technicians , and 12 life sciences teachers. Students in this post accalaureate program earn ing the Master of Science in Applied Anatomy use their rigorous training in the anatomical sciences to establish an academic basis for their application to professional schools. Case Western Reserve University medical students ear ning the joint MD/MS degree program seek advanced training in the anatomical sciences . The joint MD/MS program is undertaken and completed concurrently with the medical curriculum, particularly if

the student enters the graduate program du ring the first ear of medical school.

(GRE, MCAT, DAT), plus letters of recommendation; an Educational Credential Evaluation and Authentication Report is required for foreign transcripts plus documentation (TOEFL) of English language skills for foreign applicants.

Contact the Department of Anatomy for additional program and application information. Degree Requirements The Master of Science in Applied Anatomy

degree requires a minimum of 30 graduate course credit s. Required courses include 21 credits of the Anatomical Scien ces Core Curriculum ; the remaining credit s are elective courses selected to fulfill individual student interests and goals . M edical students are required to take at least one of the Surgical Anatomy courses A research thesis is not required , although re search experience may be obtained as elective coursework ANAT 499: Independent Study with individual faculty members. Comprehensive written and oral exams covering the basic scientific principles presented in the core

curriculum must be passed after succe ssful completion of the formal coursework comprising the Anatomical Sciences Core Curriculum. All degree requirements must be completed within five years; most students complete the progr am in 1 2 years. Tuition or stipends will not be provided for the master of science program (no additional tuition is required for enrolled medical students) .

The required courses ( 21 credits) comprising the Anat omical Sciences Core Curriculum are specifically delineated whereas the elective courses (9 credits minimum) are not identified since they vary significantly between individual students. Students become eligible to take the MS Comprehensive Examination upon successful comp letion of the ASCC courses.
