Medical Anatomy & Physiology Preparatory
The goal of the Medical Anatomy & Physiology Preparatory program is to increase the biomedical knowledge in its scholars. The centerpiece of the program is a two- to three-semester academic program offered through the Center for Anatomical Science and Education at the Saint Louis University School of Medicine.
MAPP scholars receive intensive didactic and laboratory training in the disciplines of:
- Human Gross Anatomy
- Human Embryology
- Human Histology and Ultrastructure
- Human Systems Physiology
- Human Systems Neurobiology
Structure-function correlates are emphasized in all courses.
Lectures and laboratory sessions are supplemented by a variety of educational activities designed to prepare scholars for the transition from simple post-baccalaureate fact acquisition to the development of skills for clinical problem solving.The MAPP program is limited to citizens or permanent residents of the United States. Applicants are admitted on a competitive basis and must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited U.S. college or university with a minimum GPA of 3.0 and/or sciences GPA of 2.8.
In addition, applicants must have either a minimum MCAT score of 25 or GRE general test score at the 40th percentile.
