Our Special Projects
MentOrship prOGrAM An initiative driven by the Career Development Committee (CDC), the mentorship program allows for established and early career professionals to have an opportunity to forge new relationships. This program demonstrates the association’s commitment to fostering clinical anatomy careers among anatomists by providing career development symposia, mentor contact with anatomists, and an environment for the exchange of ideas.
Our AnnuAl MeetinG Typically held in late June/ early July, the meetings consist of: • Platform and Poster presentations of scholarship in original research, education and clinical practice. Abstracts are published in Clinical Anatomy. • Annual Business Meeting • A Presidential Address • Commercial Exhibits • Special Interest Group Meetings • Award presentations for students and established anatomists alike Immediately following the Annual Meeting, the AACA and the host institution sponsor a Post Graduate Course on a topic of clinical anatomy importance.
The American Association of Clinical Anatomists is the international home for the advancement of clinical anatomy knowledge and anatomical sciences through education, research and scholarship. Clinical anatomy is defined as anatomy in all its aspects – gross, histologic, developmental and neurologic – as applied to clinical practice, the application of anatomic principles to the solution of clinical problems and/or the application of clinical observations to expand practical anatomic knowledge. The AACA enjoys a diverse, international membership composed of academically-based career anatomists and health care professionals, all of whom share an interest and commitment to clinical anatomy in all its aspects. Our AffiliAtiOns And liAisOns • British Association of Clinical Anatomists (BACA) • European Association of Clinical Anatomists (EACA) • American Association of Anatomists (AAA) • Association for Surgical Education (ASE) • Anatomical Society of Southern Africa (ASSA) • Australian and New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists (ANZACA)
Our Activities speciAl interest GrOups
Anatomical Services Committee (ASC)– promotes the activities of members who administer institutional willed body donor programs, sit on state anatomical boards and committees, and prepare cadaveric materials for education and research. Career Development Committee (CDC)– supports the professional growth of clinical anatomists at all academic ranks, fosters the development of quality research and educational scholarship. Clinical Anatomical Terminology Committee (CATC) – clarifies the diction of anatomical structures and concepts to unify the learning, teaching, and research for students, faculty and clinicians. Educational Affairs Committee (EAC) – provides instructional development to help maintain current clinical anatomy teaching standards, and proposes educational initiatives to benefit clinical anatomists, healthcare professionals, and the community. Meeting Oversight and Program Planning Committee (MOPP) – plans and executes each annual scientific meeting and postgraduate course, and sets the Association’s long-term programmatic objectives for future meetings. Annual Meeting Committee (AMC) – implements organizational and planning decisions of the MOPP Commitee, providing local host resources, selecting programmatic content and materials, and promoting the meeting within the anatomical and clinical communities.

Clinical Anatomy is the official journal of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists, the British Association of Clinical Anatomists, the Anatomical Society of Southern Africa, and the Australian and New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists. The goal is to provide a medium for the exchange of current information between anatomists and clinicians. The journal embraces anatomy in all its aspects – gross, histologic, developmental, and neurologic – as applied to medical practice. Furthermore, the journal assists physicians in keeping abreast of new methodologies for patient management and informs educators of new developments in clinical anatomy and techniques. MeMbership infOrMAtiOn • Regular (academic faculty, clinician, anatomical services staff/administrator, academic administrator) • Associate (student, postdoctoral fellow, resident) • Senior (open to those who have been Regular Members for at least five years and have reach age 65) • Affiliate (member of BACA, ASSA, or ANZACA)
