Major: Cognitive Science
Why I Chose MS in Anatomy at CWRU
For my undergraduate experience, I wanted a more holistic education which is why I decided to go to a liberal arts college. During my years there, I realized my love for research! So, during my senior year of college I contemplated between applying to PhD programs and applying for jobs. As I was searching for a solution, I had a conversation with my mentor, and she was the one who told me about the MS in Anatomy. After much thought, it was the only program I had applied to because I thought highly of the CWRU’s School of Medicine, it was close to home, and my mentor really sold the program for me.
My Future Plans
In the future, I want to do a dual PhD/MD program because of my love of research. And I can confidently say that only after attending the program for a semester, I know it will prepare me well for any degree I decided to pursue afterwards. This past semester, I took Gross Anatomy and although it was a challenging, it most definitely was worthwhile. Honestly, I would recommend this program for those who are looking to teach, go for their PhD, or simply further their education in the health sciences. Everything about the program from the professors, to my peers, to becoming a TA, to the actual course material has been amazing.
