We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
The Graduate Certificate in Anatomical and Translational Sciences (GCATS) is an academic enhancer program that offers a gateway into a career in medicine and health-related fields to first-time applicants and those who have previously but unsuccessfully applied to medical school.
Our small class size enables us to advise students and foster their key academic strengths required for successful matriculation in medical school, other health science programs or industry. Students will work closely with committed faculty from the GW School of Medicine and Health Sciences (SMHS) on a rigorous and clinically oriented curriculum focusing on basic medical sciences taught during the first year of medical school, such as gross anatomy, microscopic

"GCATS has been a wonderful experience for me. The program gave me a strong foundation in anatomy, which has helped my transition into medical school. Besides the coursework, the small size and diversity of the class, and the personal attention from the professors makes the program truly enjoyable. I am especially grateful for Dr. Chiaramello’s advice and support. With her guidance, I was able to take full advantage of the program and of other opportunities in D.C. Her advice helped me to develop a strong application and successfully matriculate into medical school. The GCATS program is a good step towards a career in the health field."
