The IFAA is in the process for developing core syllabuses for teaching anatomy in medicine and allied health programs. This project is being steered by Professor Bernard Moxham, the Immediate Past President of the IFAA.


The process for the development of these syllabuses is outlined in the paper published in Anatomical Sciences Education as Moxham et al. (2014) 'An Approach Toward the Development of Core Syllabuses for the Anatomical Sciences’ (Moxham et al., 2014, Anatomical Sciences Education)


Below is a list of the core syllabuses as that have been finalised and published. We invite you to review these and to send us comments on these syllabuses. Comments should be directed to Dr Nalini Pather (
