Honored Member Award 2005

A prolific author, Dr. Whitmore and his colleagues have published numerous anatomical texts - including but not limited to: Human Anatomy , 4th Edition - Color Atlas and Text; Human Anatomy Coloring Book Multiple Choice Questions in Human Anatomy Atlas Human Anatomy College Edition . The need for closer and personal scientific exchange among anatomists, histologists, embryologists. morphologists, anthropologists, veterinarians, dentists, biologists, and zoologists, and professionals of allied health sciences, and their interest in the uniformity of the technological language they all used in teaching and research, led a group of leaders in the field of Anatomy to found the International Federation of Associations of Anatomists (IFAA). One of the Standing Committees of the Federation is that on Anatomical Terminology (FICAT - Federative International Committee on Anatomical Terminology), of which Professor Whitmore is Chair.  

In addition to his publishing and teaching, another of his interest is development of better regimes for teaching anatomy using cadavers.   Dr. Whitmore is Professor of Human Anatomy at Stanford University where he teaches from September until March each year, spending the rest of the year in England, flying and instructing in helicopters. He teaches gross anatomy to medical students (Surgery 203) and gross anatomy to undergraduate students (Surgery 101).
