Anatomy: Associations and Societies
The Discipline of Anatomy and Histology is an internationally recognised and respected education and research institution. The Discipline offers a range of undergraduate courses and carries out extensive biomedical research.
The American Association of Anatomists was founded by Joseph Leidy in Washington, D.C. in 1888 for the “advancement of anatomical science.” Today, via research, education, and professional development activities, AAA serves as the professional home for an international community of biomedical researchers and educators focusing on the structural foundation of health and disease.
The AACA was founded to support, promote, and advance anatomically and clinically-based scholarship in research, teaching, and curricular matters within the health science professions. Its annual scientific meeting provides a vital and
supportive venue for basic and clinical scientists and educators to disseminate scholarly work of an experimental or descriptive nature in any of the subdisciplines of anatomy or specialities of medicine. Our journal, Clinical Anatomy, is the Official Journal of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists,the British Association of Clinical Anatomists, the Australian and New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists, and the Anatomical Society of Southern Africa. It publishes original and review articles of scientific, clinical, and educational interest to anatomists and clinicians. Our Association is proud to have members from over 30 countries worldwide and we continually welcome new members to our community.
The Anatomical Society (AS), founded in 1887, is a learned society with charitable status. Its aims are to promote, develop and advance research and education in all aspects of anatomical science. AS achieves these aims by organising scientific meetings; publishing the Journal of Anatomy and Aging Cell; making annual awards of PhD studentships, grants and prizes.

The Anatomy Society is open to all students with a fascination for the human body.
We strive to offer high quality events and workshops, all in the name of enhancing the extra-curricular life on campus and to supplement the nationally-recognised Anatomy education we receive at King's.
During the past academic year (2012-13), we delivered events well attended by both medical and biomedical students of King's and other London universities, plus junior doctors and academic staff. These events included speakers such as our very own Prof. Ellis (now Patron of our Society!) and others such as Mr Peter Clarke, who is regarded as the best Head & Neck Surgeon in the UK and also ranked by the Times as one of “Britain’s top 10 doctors” in 2009. During revision time we organise Anatomy revision sessions.
The Society is a national, non-governmental scientific organisation. The society dated from 1934: "Freie Vereinigung der Anatomen an Schweizer Hochschulen / Union libre des Anatomistes des Universités Suisse". It was founded in Bern by Prof. H. Bluntschli (who became the first president) together with 25 scientists working
in the Swiss Anatomical Institutes. The name of the Society was amended in 1983: "Schweizerische Gesellschaft für Anatomie, Histologie und Embryologie / Société Suisse d'Anatomie, d'Histologie et d'Embryologie" (SGAHE / SSAHE). Today's SSAHE members work in various fields of morphological science as topographical, functional, and clinical anatomy, integrative neuroscience, cell and molecular biology, developmental biology. The SSAHE is committed to the future of Anatomy as a multidisciplinary growing field in terms of research and education.
Purposes of the Society
The primary focus of the Society is to provide current, usable information to the anatomical community.
By bringing together scientists of different background the Society strives
to advance the understanding of the morphology of the human body and thus to provide the basis for other medical disciplines, and to promote education in morphology
Regular Society Meetings serve as a forum for the exchange of information about morphology.
