The American Association of Clinical Anatomists advances the science and art of clinical anatomy.  It encourages research and publication in the field and maintaining high standards in the teaching of anatomy.  Clinical anatomy is defined as anatomy in all its aspects - gross, histologic, developmental and neurologic as applied to clinical practice, the application of anatomic principles to the solution of clinical problems and/or the application of clinical observations to expand anatomic knowledge.  

Typical membership, active or associate (student/intern) in the Association comprises individuals from various backgrounds who have produced a record of research, clinical practice, clinical research, teaching in accredited Colleges and Universities, administrative or other experience in the field.
