Anatomical Sciences Core Curriculum

The core curriculum of the MS in Applied Anatomy program includes four courses that represent 17 credit hours: gross anatomy, histology, neuroanatomy, and embryology. Students typically take these courses over three semesters. A student must earn an A or B grade in each of these courses to be eligible for the MS in Applied Anatomy degree. The MS degree at CWRU requires 30 total credit hours; students in the MS in Applied Anatomy program may choose from a variety of electives to fulfill the additional 13 credits required. Below is a typical schedule for a student beginning the program in the fall. Students can also start in the spring, in which case gross anatomy is the first course taken, followed by histology and embryology the following fall.
