Program Overview

There are 3 tracks that lead up to the award of a Master of Science degree in Anatomy. The Master of Science in Anatomy is a 1-year non-thesis program, the Master of Science in Anatomy (Clinical Anatomy track) is a 2-year non-thesis program, and the MD/MS Combined degree program in Anatomy is a 4-year non-thesis program for medical students who wish to develop careers in the surgical specialties.


Master of Science 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. Students in the MS program take anatomy, histology and neuroscience courses alongside first year medical students at Tulane Medical School. All other graduate courses are taught within the School of Medicine by full time Medical School faculty.

Master of Science in Anatomy (Clinical Anatomy track)

This is a 2-year non-thesis program of study of cadaveric dissection-based gross anatomy, embryology, cell biology and histology, and neuroscience leading to a MS degree in Anatomy. It is designed specifically for candidates who wish to develop careers in teaching and research in the anatomical sciences.

MD/MS Combined degree program in Anatomy

This is a 4-year non-thesis program of study for medical students leading to the combined degrees: MD and Master of Science in Anatomy. This unique program is designed specifically for medical students who wish to develop careers in the surgical specialties. This program is only available to students who have earned a baccalaureate degree and have already been accepted to Tulane's School of Medicine. To receive the MD/MS Combined Degree, students must fulfill all requirements for graduation from both MD and MS programs before the graduation deadlines.
