Membership is open to those with a clinical or scientific interest in anatomy in its broadest sense, from microscopic anatomy, cadaveric dissection, education, through to clinical fields of surgery and radiology. 

Members become part of a community of learners with the same shared goal - to advance the study and resaerch of clinical anatomy for all, and receive the Journal of Clinical Anatomy, from our publisher, Wiley. 

Members receive invites to submit abstracts to our biannual scientific meetings. Support is offered to early career academic and clinical staff as well as students who would wish to gain experience in presentation of their work. All presented abstracts are published in our journal.
