Division of Clinical and Functional Anatomy
The Division of Clinical and Functional Anatomy functions as unit within the Department of Innovation in Medical Education. Our overriding mandate is excellence and leadership in teaching the anatomical sciences at the University of Ottawa Faculty of Medicine. The anatomical sciences are a gateway to the clinical world for medical and health science students and it is essential that we teach is well in a medical school. Through its study, students will understand the rich tapestry of structures to be encountered in every patient, while at the same time appreciating the variability that each individual possesses. The study of anatomy introduces students to the specialized vocabulary of medicine, and helps them begin to deal with issues of death that are inevitable in clinical practice.
The Division of Clinical and Functional Anatomy teaches the anatomical sciences to undergraduate medical and health science students, using lectures and laboratory sessions supplemented with a rich array of multimedia learning resources that we have developed in collaboration with the Faculty’s medical education group. We also work with resident training programs at the Faculty,
