Cellular Biology and Anatomical Sciences

Cellular biology and the anatomical sciences explore life from a molecular and physiological perspective. These specialties provide a diverse array of career options in several industries, including healthcare, medical research and teaching.

Inside Cellular Biology and Anatomical Sciences

Healthcare professionals, such as nurses and physician assistants, need at least basic training in cell biology and the anatomical sciences. Physicians, surgeons and medical research specialists require extensive training in these topics. Courses and degree programs are standard for healthcare and medical research training starting at the undergraduate level and becoming increasingly advanced through the doctoral level.

Education Information

Training in cell biology and anatomy generally include courses in molecular genetics, microscopic anatomy, statistics, biotechnology, gross anatomy and molecular cell biology. At the undergraduate level, many applied and theoretical health programs include a basic introduction to human anatomy. Advanced anatomical sciences and cellular biology programs are usually offered at the graduate level. In a master's or doctoral program, students have the opportunity to engage in coursework and research directly related to their specific interests, such as neurobiology, developmental biology or anatomy.
