Cell biology courses provide a continuation of the student's education in basic biology and serve particularly as an introduction to human as well as other mammalian tissues. Emphasis is given to organization at the subcellular, cellular, and organ levels. Upon completion of the introductory courses, the student should be prepared to undertake more advanced independent study or courses offered for graduate students.

Elective Opportunities

Intermediate and advanced graduate courses in anatomy and cell biology are open to medical students as Elective Opportunities. For these opportunities, consult members of the department or the Graduate School catalog.
