Undergraduate Gross Anatomy is an interactive lecture based course studying terminology, and tissues within the various systems of the body.

The systems of interest include: Skeletal, Joints, Muscular, Cardiovascular, Nervous, Digestive, Respiratory, Urinary, and Integumentary. The focus of this course we will be to introduce many of the underlying concepts and principles related to human gross anatomy as appropriate for an undergraduate level of education.

Dr Alan Detton

Alan J. Detton, PhD, received his Doctorate from The Ohio State University in Anatomy Education. Upon graduation, Dr. Detton accepted a lecturer position at Stanford University, where he was a faculty member in the Department of Surgery, Division of Clinical Anatomy. Dr. Detton is the current author of Grant’s Dissector 16th Edition and is currently completing a companion series of Grant's Dissection Videos to direct students on the methods of human dissection. While at Stanford University, Dr. Detton consulted with Anatomage as an anatomical expert for their curriculum products on the Anatomage Table. He has also been a Visiting Professor at St. George’s University, American University of the Caribbean, University of California San Francisco and the University of Pacific. He is currently teaching part time at the University of California San Diego and working full time with 3D4Medical as Vice President of Anatomical Education, where he continues to develop medical education anatomical products.

Dr Derek Harmon

Derek Harmon, Ph.D., received his Doctorate in Anatomy Education from The Ohio State University. Dr. Harmon went on to accept a faculty position at the University of California, San Francisco, where he is currently an Assistant Adjunct Professor in the Department of Anatomy and Education Director of the Anatomy Learning Centre. The primary focus of his teaching efforts are in Dissection-Based Human Gross Anatomy. Dr. Harmon has organized numerous courses in undergraduate and graduate medical education, including regional anatomy using ultrasound to second year anesthesiology residents and advanced head and neck dissection based courses to fourth year medical students.

Dr Yasmin Carter

Yasmin Carter Ph.D. is an Assistant Professor of Translational Anatomy at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Dr. Carter completed her Ph.D. at the University of Saskatchewan, Canada, her Master's at the University of Manitoba, Canada and her undergraduate studies at the University of Bristol England.

Her interests focus on using anatomy as a keystone for teaching transgender healthcare content and best practices to medical students and professionals. More specifically, her work is largely focused on reducing prejudice and increasing access to healthcare for transgender people/patients. She also runs the Innovations Lab at UMASS Medical School, a ‘maker-space’ dedicated to creative and out-of-the-box thinking in medical pedagogy, utilizing 3d printing and simulation. Additionally, Dr. Carter conducts research in the fields of bone biology and human osteology, and personally, she believes they are the coolest part of anatomy.

Dr. Carter currently serves on the Committee for Early Career Anatomists (CECA) of the American Association of Anatomists (AAA) and the Career Development Committee (CDC) of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists (AACA). Dr. Carter serves as a core anatomy faculty member in both the lab and lecture hall in the Development, Structure, and Function (DSF) course for first-year medical students. She also lectures in Anatomy for Forensic Anthropologists, at Boston University School of Medicine.

She lives with her giant Alaskan Malamute, in the Victorian home she is currently renovating - one YouTube video at a time. You can find her on twitter at @akhenisis.

Dr Erin Fillmore

Dr. Erin Fillmore is the Head of Anatomy and Biomedical Senior Lecturer at the University of Buckingham Medical School in Buckingham, England. Her research interests include examining the anatomical competency of newly qualified doctors, studying the underlying non-academic factors which influence the development of anatomical knowledge, and investigating medical students’ implicit theories of intelligence (ITI) and grit in order to better understand how these characteristics impact student behaviours and learning outcomes in gross anatomy.

Dr James Coey

James is an Associate Professor of Clinical Anatomy, Associate Chair and the Assistant Dean responsible for the Keith B Taylor Global program at St George's University. As a medical graduate from Southampton University James worked in Oxford, Cambridge, Trinity College Dublin & Warwick Universities before moving to the Caribbean in 2008. As a clinical anatomist/physician he continues to work as a consultant for a number of NGO's and medical devices companies.

Dr Quentin Fogg

Dr Quentin Fogg is an anatomist with broad range of experiences and areas of expertise. He has more than 17 very full years of experience teaching anatomy. He completed his BSc(Hons) in Anatomy and PhD (clinical anatomy of the wrist) at the University of Adelaide under the supervision of Ray Tedman and Greg Bain.  He gained further experience teaching at the SA College of Natural Medicine and the University of South Australia, before full-time academic appointments at Flinders University (Adelaide, Australia), American University of the Caribbean (Sint Maarten, Netherlands Antilles), The University of Glasgow (Scotland, UK) and Monash University (Melbourne, Australia). Quentin researches clinical anatomy, particularly in relation to orthopaedic and plastic surgery, as well as body donor preparation and management, anatomy education and art in anatomy. He is a Fellow of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, awarded in recognition of his achievements in clinical anatomy research and education. Quentin was featured in the two-part television documentary series “Dissected” on BBC4 in 2014, and appeared in programmes about Leonardo Da Vinci (The Culture Show, BBC2, 2013) and the Hunter brothers (“The Beauty of Anatomy” BBC4, 2014). Quentin’s research, teaching and public engagement is built upon a passion for clinical anatomy.

Dr Jennifer Burgoon

Dr. Jennifer M. Burgoon received both her MS in Cell Biology and Anatomy (2001) and her PhD in Education (2008) at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Dr. Burgoon is currently an Assistant Professor – Clinical in the Division of Anatomy in the Department of Biomedical Education & Anatomy within the College of Medicine at The Ohio State University – Columbus Campus. Dr. Burgoon is the Director of Undergraduate Education for the Division of Anatomy, as well as the Course Director for Anatomy 2300 Human Anatomy and for Anatomy 6700 Human Histology. She taught previously at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, as well as Millikin University in Decatur, Illinois. Dr. Burgoon embodies the service mission of The Ohio State University with her involvement on a number of local and national committees, including as Co-Chair of the Testing Committee for the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society (HAPS) and the Annual Meeting Co-Chair for the American Association of Clinical Anatomists (AACA).
