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.

To be considered for admission, individuals must submit the following materials:

1) An application to the School of Graduate Studies with the appropriate filing fee
2)  A copy of transcripts from each institution attended
3)  Two letters of recommendation
4)  A written statement outlining the student's goals and expectations
5) Results of the GRE (a minimum combined score of 300 on the Verbal and Quantitative parts of the GRE is required)
  NOTE: an advanced GRE test in Biology or Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology is not required but will be considered if available

It is highly recommended that all prospective applicants make initial enquiries to the Program Director prior to submitting their application packet to the School of Graduate Studies.  Foreign applicants should complete the Department's pre-application form before completing the School of Graduate Studies application.
