MAHSA University’s Master of Medical Science (Anatomy) is designed primarily for students who can then expect to continue onto doctoral studies (Ph.D., M.D., or the equivalent).
This specialisation assures training in research techniques and in the preparation of scholarly papers, and it culminates in the preparation and defence of a thesis based on original research. The student's programme of study is an initiation into methods of intense study and research in some selected area of anatomy.
The programme of study includes a comprehensive oral examination of the material presented in the core anatomy courses and a written scholarly project focusing on a contemporary issue falling under one of the various sub-disciplines of anatomy.
The programme also includes the opportunity to learn fundamental laboratory techniques used in anatomical research and the chance to help teach in one or more of the department's graduate or undergraduate courses.
