We teach anatomical sciences to medical, engineering and health science students at the University of Ottawa, using lectures and small group laboratory sessions that are supplemented with a rich collection of eLearning resources. We also collaborate with the Postgraduate Medical Education Program (PGME), Continuing Professional Development (CPD), and The University of Ottawa Skills and Simulation Centre (uOSSC) to provide anatomical resources for their prized educational sessions. Moreover, our di vision assists with the anatomical sciences education of a variety of organizations (including Algonquin College, paramedics, fire services, etc) and provides bilingual high school and college orientation tours on human anatomy and sports medicine.
