Scientific Outreach

Medical Art Prosthetics has been involved in advancing anaplastology as an art, as a profession and as a science. At the same time we hone our skills and shape our professional practices for the benefit of our current patients, we also cultivate opportunities that bring students, scientists, clinicians and engineers into our world of anaplastology .

Our anaplastologists have been recruited to join the clinical faculty of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center serving as volunteer faculty in the Division of Surgery, Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and as adjunct teaching faculty in the Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences Department of Biomedical Communication.

Since 2007 we have initiated anaplastology scientific outreach programs in collaboration with The University of Wisconsin Biomedical Engineering Department’s Student Design Consortium. An acknowledgement can be seen at:
