    If you are thinking of medical school, look into Georgetown Summer Anatomy Course. http://gsmi.georgetown.edu/

    This is probably the closest you will get to learn human anatomy at 1st year medical school level. The classes are mostly 2 hours of lecture and 4 hours of human dissection daily for 6 weeks.

    If you are planning to attend Georgetown SMP, it may not be a bad idea to get to DC early and get used to campus and surroundings while studying anatomy.

    The course is taught by the Director of Gross Anatomy for first year medical students and there will be TAs who have completed first year and are top students in Gross Anatomy. So you will be in good hands. This year, one of the TAs will be a former physio and he is just excellent.

    So if you have nothing to do this summer think about it.

    Thanks.

    So this course will be different than the standard undergrad Anatomy course offered at GU?

    As far as I know, in the regular undergraduate anatomy course offered at Georgetown, you don't get to dissect but you only get to look at prosected human bodies.

    In this course you actually get to dissect human cadavers. Also written exam is close to level of first year medical school anatomy exam. So overall, it is closer to medical school anatomy than undergraduate courses.

    Given that the course is only six weeks, it would be difficult to cover everything in medical school anatomy curriculum, but it will be close.

    The class is a 4 credit class, but the work load is more like for a 6 credit class. It is assigned as 4 credit course to reduce tuition since it is on per credit basis.
