Gross Anatomy Boot Camp

Gross Anatomy Boot Camp

a three-week intensive anatomy course for incoming students

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 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.
