Anatomy Workshop- Canceled

Unfortunately, the Anatomy Pre-Matriculation Workshop has been canceled. We are unable to guarantee a learning environment that will be similar to the one you will experience in your fall classes, and it would, therefore, not be as beneficial as we would like. If you have signed up to attend the anatomy workshop, we will automatically process a refund for it as quickly as we can. We still want to provide all incoming students with some beneficial information and resources, so we will offer a virtual presentation to provide you with some information from both faculty and student instructors. This session will be free to all incoming students. More information will be forthcoming as we solidify details.
