Young Anatomists

About us

The Young Anatomists (YA) are the mentoring program of the German Anatomical Society and were launched at the 114th Annual Meeting of the Anatomical Society in 2019.

Our goal is to support young anatomists on their career path in Anatomy and to represent their interests. This program promotes a strong and active future of the anatomical community.

The YA bring together anatomists at various career stages – from medical students to professors – to facilitate direct exchange. Additionally, we aim to connect junior anatomists with each other and establish an interactive platform.

With the support of various mentors, we organize workshops, symposia, and online meetings on topics relevant to young anatomists (such as securing third-party funding, application procedures, or body donation).
