students seeking to strengthen their credentials to enter pre-professional schools in medicine, dentistry, or paramedical training in medicine-associated disciplines
technology-oriented students focused on using advanced imaging applications in clinical departments
engineering or computer science majors interested in advanced imaging applications and software development, and opportunities in medical device design and prosthetics
illustrators and 3D artists seeking anatomical training for employment in medico-legal, advertising, or entertainment venues
Graduation from an accredited college or university with a BA or BS degree
Minimum cumulative GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale from all colleges or universities attended
GRE scores or MCAT scores that are 5 years old or less
Students entering the Master of Science in Modern Human Anatomy will be taking gross anatomy alongside medical students, and will be required to take MSMHA courses which require a substantive background in biological sciences. Due to the challenges facing students in the core courses for this MSMHA degree, it is required that applicants successfully complete full course cycles with B or better grades in the following areas:
2 semesters of college-level general biology with labs
2 semesters of general chemistry with labs
1 semester of statistics
1 semester of college physics (algebra or calculus based)
Potential applicants who have not completed the above courses may be considered for the program, based on the applicant’s strengths, background, and competencies.
