•  All budgets are estimated costs and subject to change.

 • The budget is for the student and educational expenses during the period of enrollment only.

*Please note:  Intensive Summer Anatomy Course ( Podiatry ISAC) – Students are selected for this course based on GPA and MCAT scores, as well as previous course work in anatomy. No separate fee is charged as the student registers for medical school upon matriculation into this course. Upon completion of ISAC, students will resume the anatomy curriculum by participating in the Head and Neck section, which occurs in the latter portion of the Medical Gross Anatomy Course. Students who complete ISAC with a minimum grade of 80% are potentially eligible to assist the faculty during the Gross Anatomy portion of the regular Medical Gross Anatomy course.
