to the Center for Functional Anatomy
and Evolution at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine.
The primary research focus of the Center is the exploration of relationships
among the functional anatomy, behavior, and evolutionary biology of
extant and extinct vertebrates. The Center provides an exceptional opportunity
for graduate students to study and conduct original research in evolutionary
organismal biology (see the Program
page). Training in the teaching of human anatomy is also an important
part of our program. Fieldwork opportunities are available (see individual
for more information on these).
The Center is responsible for delivering the School of Medicine Anatomy course, part of the requirements for the MD degree. Additionally, we deliver a
Summer Institute in Anatomy, offered to students both in and outside of the Johns Hopkins community. For more information, or to apply, click here
The department also houses a large collection of fossil
vertebrates and various research facilities (see the Resources page for more details).

graduate program, specific faculty interests, and resources is available
