Education Program in Anatomy

The Education Program in Anatomy was initially chaired by Dr. Richard Butler, followed by Dr. Hallie Groves, and again by Dr. Ball. Dr. Bruce Wainman of the Midwifery Education Program began his tenure as Chair of the Education Program in Anatomy in 2005.
Today the lab serves a growing number of students and educational programs, from undergraduate students in Health Sciences and Kinesiology to the Rehabilitation Sciences, Medicine, Nursing, Midwifery, and Engineering. With the different curricula of these new programs and the growing number of learners in the lab, the Education Program in Anatomy has already begun an ambitious investigation into how best to present anatomy to each program. With more students positioned in clinical placements away from campus, we are beginning to address the enormous need for on-line anatomy material while maintaining and improving the Lab's existing format.
In the future, the Education Program in Anatomy may also play a central role in the development of a Surgical Skills Centre for both undergraduate and graduate medical training. Located in McMaster University Medical Centre, across the hall from both the current Clinical Learning Centre and proposed Practical Skills Lab, the addition of the Surgical Skills Centre to the Education Program in Anatomy would complete a suite of one-stop allied health training labs. This suite of training labs would add enormously to the wide range of excellent medical training at McMaster University.
