Saint Louis University’s program in anatomy and physiology aids graduates in gaining entry into medical school, other health care professional programs or biomedical science graduate programs.
Saint Louis University’s graduate certificate in medical anatomy and physiology is a rigorous, two-semester, academic-enhancing program for post-baccalaureate scholars considering careers in medicine, other health care professions or biomedical sciences. The program has an 85 percent success rate for student placement in advanced degrees.
Offered through the School of Medicine’s Center for Anatomical Science and Education (CASE), students also have the opportunity to apply for the CASE master's degree graduate programs. Core courses successfully completed in the medical anatomy and physiology certificate program apply toward the completion of the M.S. in anatomy.
Saint Louis University's post-baccalaureate certificate in medical anatomy and physiology offers students the opportunity to learn from a diverse team of faculty, clinicians and scientists dedicated to teaching, training and advising students. Students will experience hands-on training in gross anatomy and neuroanatomy laboratories in an academic center that has been providing expert anatomical education for more than 100 years.
