The MS Anatomy degree offered by Tulane University is structured for those who wish to enhance their eligibility for entry to professional schools. 



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 offered by Tulane University. 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.

The degree program offers a carefully designed curriculum that includes taking classes with medical students, participating in a learning experience that closely models the medical school environment (small group teaching and learning, problem-based learning, team-based learning, simulation, early standardized patient experience, virtual microscopy, dissection-based anatomy). Class size is maintained at 20 students to maximize the small-group teaching environment. Students in the MS program take anatomy and histology 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.
