Summer Undergraduate Research Experience

Summer Makeup Course Program Listing of US Medical Schools




Clinically Integrated Human Anatomy; Rowan University-Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, Stratford, New Jersey


Clinically Integrated Human Anatomy

Course Description:

With the increased implementation of integrated medical curricula throughout the country, there are dwindling opportunities to learn “anatomical medicine” through an intact, clinically-designed “gross anatomy” course. Clinically Integrated Human Anatomy is an intensive, 8-week course that covers all aspects of human anatomy but stresses life-stage-dependent clinical applications. Although the course does not have a detailed embryology component, it does have sufficient developmental information supporting the pediatric clinical applications. Students receive instruction through lecture, interactive laboratory dissection and various modalities of diagnostic imaging. Students successfully completing the course will earn 7 graduate credits.

The course will meet mostly on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday. The exception is the added Tuesday, 6/23/15. Dissection labs are performed by student groups under faculty direction. Grades will be determined by four written and four practical exams to be given at the conclusion of each section:

  • Introduction and Thorax (1 credit)
  • Abdominopelvis and Perineum (2 credits)
  • Integrated Back and Limbs (2 credits)
  • Head and Neck (2 credits)

    Each exam is composed of written, practical and diagnostic imaging portions.

Although the summer program is best suited for medical students who need to remediate deficiencies in requirements of clinically oriented human gross anatomy, it is also suitable for pre- and post-graduate students of other health professions, relevant graduate programs, and to serve as a postgraduate review of clinically integrated human anatomy.
