Summer Institute in Anatomy


About Us Banner


What are the requirements for admission to the Summer Anatomy Institute?

You must have at least completed your freshman year before the course begins on June 1, 2020. No previous anatomy coursework is expected, but a basic biology course may prove helpful.

What will I need to bring if I stay in the dorm?

Each suite is equipped with single bedrooms, a common living area, and a bathroom for every two bedrooms (some suites have two bedrooms, others have four). There is a small kitchenette, but you will need to provide cooking and eating utensils. A central kitchen with a microwave oven is available in the dorm, but you may want to bring a small one to use in your suite. Some previous students find that bedrooms are cold, so you may want to bring an extra blanket. Bed linens and towels are provided.

What are deadline/important dates?

March 10, 2020: complete applications due (form, fee, transcripts, letter of recommendation) as a single packet send by FedEx, UPS or similar courier service.

Successful applicants will be notified by late March.
April 30, 2020: ABSOLUTE deadline for receipt of tuition and room payments.

June 1 - June 26, 2020: course dates

How do I get from the Homewood campus to the medical school campus?

Free shuttle buses between the two campuses run frequently throughout the day and evening. The shuttle will pick you up in front of the dorm and take you to the Monument and Broadway stop, a short walk to where classes are held (the Preclinical Teaching Building).

What is a typical Summer Anatomy Institute day?

Lectures are from 10 AM until noon; labs are from 1-3 PM each day. On Fridays, you may stay in the lab until 5 PM to ask questions or get additional help on the previous week's classes.

What about health insurance?

Students that already have health insurance are required to fill out the Health Insurance Form, found on the application page. For students without health insurance, it can be purchased at a cost of about $320 for coverage for the month of June.
