"The Anatomy department is unique within Queen’s for its emphasis on teaching. As a graduate student, I was encouraged to instruct undergraduates, medical students and other professional students which was so important for my personal academic development. Having a resource such as the Museum of Human Anatomy in the department – one of the best in North America – augments the quality and breadth of all students’ anatomy education."
