Review Team

TeachMeAnatomy seeks to create the most comprehensive anatomy resource; covering all aspects of anatomy as well as many related topics in medicine and surgery. To do this, TeachMeAnatomy relies on the knowledge and expertise of our contributors and reviewers.

This review team was created in January 2018 – and it is important to note that not all content on the site has been reviewed by them. As such, any errors or omissions should in no way be attributed to our reviewers.
