Human Anatomy Requirement

Anatomical model of a rib cage showing muscle and bone structure.

The Human Anatomy Requirement for the MOT program is very content specific.

We require that all 3-credit or equivalent courses accepted to fulfill this requirement cover the following content areas:

  1. Upper limbs: bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels in the upper limbs of the human body
  2. Lower limbs: bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels in the lower limbs of the human body
  3. Trunk: bones, joints, muscles, nerves, and blood vessels in the back and thorax of the human body.

Accepted courses

The MOT Program reviews and approves all courses that are accepted to fulfill the Human Anatomy requirement at the time of review. If you feel that a course on the Declined Human Anatomy Courses list should be re-reviewed please email us at mot.admissions@ubc.ca.

Applicants can only submit an application to the MOT program if they have completed, or will complete by April 30 of the application year, an accepted Human Anatomy course. Applications which list a course that does not appear on the list of Accepted Human Anatomy Courses will automatically be considered ineligible.
