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.

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.
