In May 2007, as a result of a travel award from the Centre of Educational Development and the Symington Memorial Trust from the Anatomical Society of Great Britain and Ireland, I was delighted to attend the American Association of Anatomists (AAA) annual conference in Washington DC. The AAA conference was a joint venture with the Experimental Biology Annual Meeting which is a multi-society, interdisciplinary, scientific meeting of Anatomy, Biochemistry and Physiology. The AAA conference was important because not only did it allow me to present my own research, it also gave me the opportunity to meet other scientists and learn from them. Attending this conference was important for me because it also incorporated sessions on innovative methods of teaching anatomy. As a relatively new Teaching Fellow at Queen’s, it gave me the opportunity to learn how lecturers from other universities teach similar courses to mine.
