Membership of the Anatomical Society

Join the Anatomical Society here

The Anatomical Society welcomes enthusiastic and engaged members from all over the world who wish to contribute to the growth of the Anatomical Sciences.

We are pleased to welcome new members from academia and from related fields outside academia. 

The Society considers the Anatomical Sciences to include any subject in which morphology at macroscopic, microscopic or ultrastructural level is important. Thus, as well as traditional medical and veterinary anatomy it includes cell and tissue biology, neuroscience, development, biomechanics, physical anthropology and evolution.

The Membership is managed by a Membership Officer who chairs the Membership Committee, whose remit is to provide a friendly and efficient interface between the Society and the Membership. 

We have a cosmopolitan representation of our Membership which covers a large number of countries. 

Our Membership is distributed in different categories and each category has a range of benefits.

Our Membership spans from eminent and very well established long standing anatomists to undergraduate students who are starting developing their interest in Anatomy. 

We have an inclusive policy and would encourage any person with a professional interest in Anatomy to become a member of the Anatomical Society.

Complimentary membership: Individuals who submit a membership application after the March council meeting of the Anatomical Society (usually held in late March) will receive complimentary membership of the Society until the following September, once their membership is approved.  Non-member participants attending the Anatomical Society winter meeting in December will receive complimentary membership of the Society until the following September once their membership is approved, provided that they submit a membership application during the January that immediately follows the meeting.
