On Monday, July 29, the inaugural cohort of the new Modern Anatomical Sciences (MAS) program, comprised of Andrew Alejo, Molly Bannan, Joshua Castor, and Kaitlyn Gullett, started classes alongside the newest M1 class. The Modern Anatomical Sciences program is the newest College of Graduate Studies program, receiving approval from the Ohio Department of Higher Education in March 2019.
The program offers two degree options: a two-year Master of Science in Modern Anatomical Sciences and a one-year Master of Modern Anatomical Sciences. The Master of Science in Modern Anatomical Sciences prepares students as future anatomical instructors by providing students with foundational medical coursework in year one, mentored teaching practicums in year two, and nearly 100 hours of clinical imaging training. The Master of Sciences degree option concludes with a thesis project that allows students to demonstrate their scholarly contribution to biomedical imaging. The Master of Modern Anatomical Sciences provides students with the same foundational medical coursework, along with 40 hours of clinical and research-based imaging training, that concludes with a capstone project.
The College of Graduate Studies and the Program Directors are excited to welcome this inaugural cohort to NEOMED and provide them with opportunities to explore the Modern Anatomical Sciences and enhance their future health profession careers!
