• Anatomy


    Facilitating exploration of the morphological diversity of the human body throughout development, life, disease and death


  • The Division of Anatomy facilitates a student’s exploration of the human body throughout development, life, disease and death. Anatomy provides a medical student’s first exposure into the intricacies and variations of human structure, and appropriate respect for treating the human body. Knowledge of the human body forms much of the basis for understanding physiology, neuroscience, pathology and medicine.

    Anatomy faculty are committed to providing an outstanding educational experience for medical students, graduate students and physicians by utilizing clinically relevant applications to stimulate problem-solving skills and critical thinking. During the first two years of the medical school curriculum, anatomy faculty teach gross anatomy, histology, embryology and neuroanatomy throughout sections of the integrated curriculum. In the College of Biosciences, anatomy faculty teach and mentor graduate students.

    The Division of Anatomy also collaborates extensively with both Divisions of Basic Science and Clinical Education to develop outstanding educational programs in human anatomy.
