The training I received with the Certificate in Anatomical Sciences Education proved invaluable the first time I taught a university-level course. I was able to quickly develop high-quality lectures, activities, assessments, and other course materials that the students found both informative and engaging.

The Certificate in Anatomical Sciences Education within the Master of Science in Modern Human Anatomy curriculum provides students with the pedagogical foundations, mentoring, and practice necessary to become effective educators in the anatomical sciences.  The certificate provides students with a career-specific degree path, access to faculty within the Academy of Medical Educators, mentorship from School of Medicine scholars, and inclusion in an intellectual community of peers. The certificate will build on foundational scientific coursework, explore pedagogical theory, provide opportunities to practice, and culminate in a teaching portfolio. Students will benefit from receiving a documented specialization displayed on their transcripts to leverage for post-graduation job placement.
