Medical Human Anatomy Online Graduate Certificate


Want to learn human medical anatomy in a modern way? Learn the anatomy through practical, clinically-relevant exercises instead of through rote memorization of tables of muscles and cells. Encompassing the anatomy of embryos and adults as well as microanatomy at the cellular level, this graduate certificate program offers a complete study of the anatomy of the human body.

The Medical Human Anatomy certificate is especially designed for students wishing to enhance their medical school applications, overseas students with MD or PhD degrees wishing to enhance their applications into US programs, and science teachers who teach anatomy at the high school or college level. This program will consist of 13 credits offered entirely online. Upon completion of this program, students will receive a Certificate of Medical Human Anatomy from the University of Florida.
