McGill University’s Department of Anatomy and Cell Biology would like to design an entirely new Masters Program (M.Sc., non-thesis) focusing specifically on Anatomical Science Education. We already offer a unique undergraduate program (B.Sc.) focusing on courses in cell biology, histology, embryology, neuroanatomy, and gross anatomy; however, there currently only exists graduate programs (M.Sc.) in Cell Biology. The new program would be aimed towards training students wanting to teach Anatomical Science (gross anatomy, histology, neuroanatomy, etc) at the CEGEP, High School and intro-University level. Unlike the M.Sc. in Cell Biology, those with an M.Sc. in Anatomical Science Education would be prepared to work and teach full-time immediately after graduation. A non-thesis degree will require 45 total credits (as with the “thesis”-based Master’s) and instead of a formal thesis, students will prepare a “Practicum” on an anatomical structure (possibly of clinical significance), prepare a report and give an oral presentation. In order to design this program, there needs to be sufficient interest from the student body. Please fill out the form below and feel free to forward it to as many friends, colleagues, interns and students as you like. Thank you, Department of Anatomy & Cell Biology MACSS (McGill Anatomy & Cell Biology Students’ Society) Feel free to e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions/concerns.
Note: You do not need to be a current student in Anatomy & Cell Biology, nor do you need to be a McGill Science student to fill out the form below.
