Dr. Maureen O'Leary
A PhD in Anatomical Sciences
The Department of Anatomical Sciences, within the Health Sciences Center, offers a multidisciplinary graduate program leading to the Ph.D. degree. Students receive comprehensive training to prepare them for teaching and research in the areas of evolutionary morphology, functional morphology, systematics, musculoskeletal biology, and vertebrate paleontology. Graduate students are guided through a program of courses appropriate for their particular educational needs. In this regard, the Department of Anatomical Sciences interacts with other departments in the School of Medicine as well as those in the Biological Sciences and the Anthropology Department. Faculty members of Anatomical Sciences play vital roles in both the university-wide Interdepartmental Doctoral Program in Anthropological Sciences and the Turkana Basin Institute.
