Welcome to the Department of Anatomy at Case Western Reserve University. Our department provides cutting-edge instruction in human anatomy to medical students, graduate students and undergraduate students.

Our program leading to the Masterís of Science degree in Applied Anatomy provides rigorous training for students who aspire to careers requiring a solid foundation in human anatomy. This curriculum is ideal for students with a range of career goals, including those who will be future teachers of Anatomy or who will pursue careers in medicine or other health professions or scientific fields that involve anatomy.

The MS in Applied Anatomy can also be combined with the MD curriculum in a four-year joint MD-MS curriculum. This provides an enhanced background for medical students who plan to enter surgical specialties, radiology or other fields that rely on detailed understanding of human anatomy. The Anatomical Sciences Curriculum provides teaching in anatomy for medical students in the University Program at CWRU. Instruction includes gross anatomy, histology and embryology. Teaching formats include lectures and gross anatomy laboratory with dissection.

I welcome you to further explore the descriptions of our programs on this website.
