    Has anyone been through this program or know anything of it? I know it is a 1-2 year program, tough, and small. I can't find any information on a matriculation rate.

    I have recently been accepted to the program which is shocking because of my stats... I'll post them below.

    UCSD 2005
    Biochemistry/Cell

    GPA: 2.5
    MCAT: 33R 11/11/11

    EC: I spent some time teaching English in Japan. Travelled through most of East Asia, then decided to pursue medicine. Took some classes over the summer of 07' and finished with a 3.6 (realized classes wouldn't really help my GPA too much). Volunteered at the UCLA hospital and UCLA labs throughout summer 07-08'. Decided to apply to an SMP. Started studying for the MCAT 9/07... took it in 1/08. It's been three years since I graduated from SD and I never really learned the material THAT well to begin with, so I was hoping the admins would weigh my score (it's good but not terrific) in a more positive light due to circumstance.

    I am posting in this forum because I know there is a joint program with MDs at Case. Have any of you gone through it or know someone who has? I just need an idea of whether I have a chance of matriculating.
    Anything about Case's Anatomy program would be GREATLY appreciated.

    Thanks!!

    I assume you're asking about matriculating as an MD. Well, I don't know much about it, but I do know there is someone in my incoming class at Case who was accepted to the MD program after doing the Master's in Anatomy. I think it's a chance for you to show what you're capable of and it will also give you a head start on the material. Not a bad idea if you have the means of doing it.

    I applied and got accepted to it, but only as a "backup" to the SMPs I applied to. I got into an SMP, so I didn't go. The Applied Anatomy masters is NOT an SMP. It is a 2 year program and is geared toward those who might teach college-level anatomy. However, you take all science classes and it's through the medical school, so if you're looking for a Masters degree to get prior to applying, it might be a good choice as a last resort.
