Selection of applicants for the Ph.D. Program in Clinical Anatomy is based upon previous academic performance, strength of previous training, letters of recommendation, and performance on the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). This is a very selective program that typically only accepts one student per year. Preference will be given to applicants that can demonstrate a strong background in anatomy and a desire to teach human anatomy in a clinical setting.

It is highly recommended that all prospective applicants make initial enquiries to the Program Director prior to submitting their application packet.
