The present article surveys the changes in the time allocated for the four disciplines in the anatomical sciences in the medical curricula of allopathic medical schools in the United States from 1967–2001. The results indicate that there was a great reduction in the laboratory portions, but not in the lecture portions of Gross Anatomy, Histology, Neuroanatomy, and Embryology. The greatest time reduction overall for the disciplines occurred between 1967–1973 (502 to 387 hr), followed by the time reduction between 1982–1995 (380 to 329 hr). Clin.
