Structural & Cellular Biology ~ Academic Programs

The Department of Structural and Cellular Biology offers programs of graduate study leading to:

MS in Anatomy
MS in Clinical Anatomy
MS in Anatomy Research
MD-MS in Anatomy Combined Degree
Anatomy Certification & Leadership Program
Ph.D. in Structural and Cellular Biology

Medical Student Courses
The Department of Structural and Cellular Biology (SCB) teaches approximately half of the courses for the first year medical students.  In addition, graduate courses and medical student elective courses are offered by the faculty.  The material in the anatomical courses is closely correlated to facilitate student learning.

Gross & Developmental Anatomy
The course in human gross anatomy is offered to medical and graduate students.  Graduate students must have approval of the course director to take the course.  The course is taught from a regional approach with a strong emphasis on functional and radiographic anatomy.  The embryology component of the course addresses human development and is concerned with both normal and abnormal development.  The course is directed by Dr. David Jerrett.

Medical Histology
The course is offered to medical and graduate students.  Graduate students must have the approval of the course director.  The course involves the microscopic study of cells, tissues and organs at both the light and electron microscopic levels. The course is directed by Dr. Rajunor Ettarh.

Neuroscience
This core course introduces medical students to the structure and function of the nervous system. Emphasis is placed on the correlative aspects of the structure of the nervous system as it relates to disease. The course includes laboratories and conferences provided by Structural and Cellular Biology (SCB) Department faculty.  The course is directed by Dr. David Blask.
