The Author
Robert Whitaker My name is Robert Whitaker and I spent my clinical career as a paediatric urological surgeon. Having retired from surgery, I now teach clinically applied topographical anatomy to medical students in Cambridge, UK. I also teach clinical anatomy to surgical, radiological and other speciality trainees. I am a past examiner for the MRCS at the English and Edinburgh Colleges of Surgeons.

This Website -
When I relearned anatomy 30 years ago, I made notes and drew diagrams which are the basis for this website and the associated apps. Over 30 years, students have found them useful and I want to share them with all those people interested in anatomy. There are tips, mnemonics and lists of questions to bring out the relevance and basic principles. Please keep telling us what you like and dislike on email -

Other Anatomical Teaching Material
Instant Anatomy INSTANT ANATOMY - the book is quite separate and not related to the website. It is anatomy in dictionary format which has proved popular and has been published in English, Polish, Chinese, Greek, French, German, Portuguese, Belgian and Korean. Click on the book icon to see more about the book and some sample pages. Look up the median nerve in most books and the index shows it in the axilla, upper arm, forearm and hand. In INSTANT ANATOMY you find all the information on a single page. We are proud of sections on muscles, cranial nerves and particularly on autonomics which students tell us they never really understood until they read this book! Have a look yourself.

Instant AnatomyA Visual Guide to Clinical Anatomy is a visual reference guide, containing more than 900 high-quality illustrations of human anatomy. I have drawn these myself with Adobe - Illustrator to present a simple, easy-to-understand approach to both teaching and learning. Each illustration is designed to provide a summary of key anatomical and clinical information of a specific topic or clinical condition in a succinct and clinically relevant way. It is valuable for any medical student, instructor, surgical trainee, physician, or healthcare practitioner. Publisher: John Wiley and Sons Ltd ISBN: 9781119708100
