LMU-DCOM offers a three-week intensive anatomy course to incoming osteopathic medical students. The course is designed for incoming first-year osteopathic medical students who wish to start learning Gross Anatomy prior to the start of school. During the three-week course, students will begin each day at 8:30 a.m. with a quiz over the previous day's material. The quizzes encourage long-term mastery of medical gross anatomy. Course material will be presented through small group discussions and time in the LMU-DCOM anatomy lab. There will be a heavy emphasis on the clinical aspects of anatomy so that the student can equate various physical signs and symptoms with anatomical pathology. The class day concludes at 4 p.m. each day.
The course is taught by Dr. Jonathan Leo, chair of the anatomy department and assistant provost for medical programs at LMU-DCOM; and Dr. Natalie Langley, associate professor of anatomy. Leo has served as a Kaplan lecturer for the past 10 years. Langley received her PhD from the University of Tennessee in Knoxville as a student of Dr. Richard Jantz, director emeritus of the Forensic Anthropology Center.
The course is limited to the first 80 applicants from the incoming osteopathic medical students, veterinary medicine students and MS students in anatomical sciences or biomedical professions. A $50 non-refundable deposit must be included with the application. Campus housing will be available during the course period. The 2016 class begins July 5, 2016, and concludes on July 22, 2016.
