NEOMED Hosts Two Summer Anatomy Academy Courses

ROOTSTOWN, Ohio – Applications are being accepted for Northeast Ohio Medical University’s Anatomy Academy summer program for high schoolers, undergraduate students and adult learners.

The program, available in two two-week sessions, is held at the university’s Rootstown campus 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily June 15 to 26 and July 6 to 17. Activities include foundational lectures on anatomy, group discussion and case-based clinical sessions. 

The academy is taught by Dr. Dana Peterson, an anatomy and neurobiology professor at NEOMED.

“This is a totally unique experience to have educational opportunities to work directly with cadavers in a gross anatomy lab” she said in a statement. “This gives an inside look at life as a medical student, as well as opening doors in several rapidly-growing occupations in the anatomy field.”

The Anatomy Academy has 20 spots available and costs $2,500 per two-week session. Participants must be at least 16 years old. One full-tuition scholarship is available for a student between 16 and 16 years old that lives within 30 miles of NEOMED.

Registration and scholarship applications are available here.
