The MSc in anatomy is designed to broaden and deepen knowledge in anatomy for those students who are already enrolled in the DVM degree program and who have the potential to combine the requirements for both degrees during the first three years of the DVM degree program. The program is also available to train trained veterinarians or other scientists, providing instruction in the basic aspects of gross anatomical, histological, and developmental sciences, with particular emphasis on areas relevant to veterinary anatomy, in order to be able to enter a career in teaching and research and/or to be able to undergo a PhD degree program by building upon the foundation already established at the MSc level, in any of these basic anatomical areas.

The broad areas of studies in veterinary anatomy include, but are not limited to, aspects of gross anatomy, histology, embryology and developmental biology, cytology, neuroanatomy, comparative and avian anatomy, and histochemistry.
