SAN ANTONIO (Jan. 29, 2013) — Feb. 28 is the deadline for undergraduate students to apply to a human anatomy summer workshop for pre-professional students offered in the School of Medicine at the UT Health Science Center San Antonio. The course is for any student interested in pursuing a degree in a health profession.
Participants will gain an introduction to all aspects of human anatomy with hands-on experience. The course will run 80 hours over four weeks, June 3-28, and include work with human cadavers donated to health science education. The registration fee of $4,000 covers all lab and lecture costs (such as scrubs, masks and safety glasses), instruction by skilled anatomists, lecture materials and a personal copy of an anatomical atlas. Students must pay for required immunizations, parking on campus and housing in San Antonio.
Because of limited enrollment, early application is recommended; there is a $50 non-refundable application fee. To inquire about eligibility, write to HumanAnatomyWksp@uthscsa.edu.
