Master of Clinical Anatomy Program

Director:  Marc A. Pizzimenti, PhD, MA, BEd

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT? The Master of Clinical Anatomy Program works closely with the Carver College of Medicine Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, Office of Graduate Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, and the UI Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion to foster an environment where all members of the University of Iowa Health Care community—students, faculty, postdoctoral scholars, staff, residents and fellows—feel welcome.

OUR CURRICULUM This degree is designed to train the next generation of educators in the health sciences and specifically for candidates who wish to develop careers in teaching and research in the anatomical sciences or advance to professional programs. Most of the course work is completed during the first two semesters of the first year. Starting in the following summer, students enroll in practicums, research and electives that train them in principles and practice of medical education and curriculum development.

LARGE IMPACT IN A SMALL CLASSROOM The small class size allows hands-on learning experiences using cutting-edge technology and the opportunity to learn from world renowned faculty.

WE ARE AN ACADEMIC MEDICAL CENTER Being an academic medical center means that we teach and train future doctors and scientists, take care of patients, and do medical research. As a student, you will get the opportunity to work and learn with some of the top medical experts in the world in state-of-the-art facilities.
