M.S. in Clinical Anatomy

The Masters Program in Clinical Anatomy at Creighton University School of Medicine is offered in the Department of Biomedical Sciences with the collaboration of the departments of Radiology, Surgery and Pathology.

This program is designed to prepare students with the necessary skills and experiences to teach clinically relevant anatomy in any of the Health Sciences. The program curriculum includes human gross anatomy and neuroanatomy, pathology, surgery, radiology, and embryology as related to clinical practice.

Students will have opportunities to dissect the entire human body, to attend autopsies and surgeries, and to participate in case-based discussions of regional anatomy. A portion of the curriculum will also be devoted to lecture techniques, clinical correlations, computer aided instruction, and to the proper and safe preparation and use of preserved and fresh tissue for anatomical demonstration.

Students must begin the program in August with the study of human gross anatomy. The program of study lasts 18 months including the summer session of the first year. Students will graduate with a Master's Degree in Clinical Anatomy in December.

The Clinical Anatomy Facilities

Our newly renovated facilities include easy maintenance epoxy floors, state-of-the-art down-draft ventilation system, 37 plasma screens in all labs and a separate surgical demonstration room which features a new ALM surgical light with prism-based technology, flat screen monitor and integrated camera system and DVD recording system. We would like to extend our appreciation to the Creighton alumni whose generosity made it possible to modify our existing lab into a state-of-the-art facility.
