MSMHA Seminars


Dr. Glenn Merritt with students following seminar
The MSMHA Seminar Series is designed to introduce our students and the AMC community to the breadth of research and innovation within the realm of imaging, technology, and the anatomical sciences.  Additionally, students will be exposed to potential capstone project and independent study opportunities.  
 

Seminar attendance is mandatory for 1st year MSMHA students. Second year students are strongly encouraged to attend.

We encourage students to attend various seminars on campus, and have listed several recommended seminars/Grand Rounds on the left side-bar of this page.  

These events are open to all students and faculty - take advantage of the amazing opportunities on campus!

MSMHA Seminars will be held:
Fall Semester:  Thursdays at 10:00 AM
Spring Semester:  Fridays at 11:00 AM
unless otherwise noted on the schedule below.    Please contact Jennifer Thurston for questions regarding the MSMHA seminar series.
