Clinical Anatomical Terminology Committee Breakfast Meeting

ALL Invited to Attend

Wednesday, July 11
7:30 - 9:00 AM

At our breakfast meeting, we will first review the work of the CAT Committee and its progress towards clarifying anatomical terms and usages that may differ among anatomists, clinicians, researchers, and across multiple languages.  Attendees will work with others at their table to learn about interesting etymologies, and develop a list of confusing or miscommunicated anatomical structures/concepts.  They will then have an opportunity to work with the CAT's "Definition-Creation-Machine" to produce clear and concise definitions.  The meeting will finish with a discussion on how to raise awareness and get people involved in writing and/or reviewing definitions.  New committee members will be elected at the end of the meeting.
