We provide high-end continuing medical education courses in a state-of-the-art facility. Over 10,000 physicians pass through our doors each year and are involved in a multitude of educational opportunities, many of which highlight our live operating room streaming capabilities or national/international video conferencing services. Recently, the Foundation’s courses have reached over 250,000 viewers online in over 182 countries.
SURGICAL AND TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION
From our 21-station operating suite, we partner with various surgical specialties to develop innovative teaching methods that enable surgeons to practice new procedures on realistic anatomical models. Also, we work with industry to improve surgical instruments, devices, and technologies to improve patient care.
CLINICAL ANATOMY CONSULTATIONS: IMPROVING PATIENT CARE
The Seattle Science Foundation engages with clients to tackle their most challenging issues, drives change and delivers customized solutions to meet your needs. Our facility engages physicians and other professionals to help answer any anatomical questions with the bottom line of improving patient care.
In our anatomical research facility, medical and surgical problems are examined, and alternative anatomical solutions developed to solve various issues that face clinicians and surgeons alike. The Seattle Science Foundation boasts a large group of anatomical and clinical fellows from partnering medical centers which together are helping change the way we move forward with our understanding of human anatomy. This collaborative research and subsequent discoveries have resulted in over 100 peer-reviewed publications per year in major medical journals as well as the publication of many clinical/surgical textbooks. Additionally, the Seattle Science Foundation houses the editorial office of the journal Clinical Anatomy (the official journal of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists) and the journal The Spine Scholar.
