Graduate Certificate in Anatomical and Translational Sciences

The graduate certificate in anatomical and translational sciences (GCATS) program provides students in medical and translational sciences with an understanding of human gross anatomy, embryology, functional histology, neuroanatomy, modern stem cell and developmental biology, and technology for biomedical molecular imaging. GCATS offers a contemporary clinical emphasis using problem-based learning. The certificate program is designed to maximize career opportunities in the health fields, to enhance competitiveness of applications to medical school or physician assistant programs, or to transition into an advanced graduate degree program in the biomedical sciences.
