What will students learn?

The certificate program study plan involves coursework in Physiology, Histology, and Cell Biology that are the Department’s core and electives in Basic and Applied Anatomy, Histology and Developmental Anatomy, Neuroscience, and Biomedical Cell and Molecular Biology. Full-time certificate program students should complete their study plan within two semesters with an accumulation of 16 to 18 credit hours. 

The core courses are the same courses taken by our first year veterinary students, so successful completion can ease the first-year course load if the student is subsequently admitted into the professional program or enters other academic programs. Depending on the institution and program, these graduate-level courses may also be transferrable toward the requirements of an advanced degree program such as an MS or PhD.
