A/PROF Quentin Fogg




  • Quentin is an Associate Professor in Clinical Anatomy in the Department of Anatomy and Neuroscience. He earned a degree in Anatomy, followed by a PhD in Clinical Anatomy, from The University of Adelaide. He has 20 years of experience teaching head-to-toe anatomy in Australia, North America and the UK. In addition to teaching science, medical and allied health students, he has particular expertise in specialist anatomy education for active clinicians. He has a long history of designing and delivering innovative short courses in a variety of clinical disciplines, and now runs The University of Melbourne’s highly successful Graduate Diploma in Surgical Anatomy. Quentin leads a research group that explores the detailed anatomy of the limbs (and other areas) using dissection, digital modelling, medical imaging and histology. He is also involved in education research, particularly regarding innovations in anatomy education (technical and pedagogical), skill-development in anatomy, and the training of anatomy educators. In 2013, his work in clinical anatomy was recognised by election to Fellowship of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow. Quentin has been featured on British television, including the two-part documentary series “Dissected” on BBC4 in 2014, a programme about Leonardo Da Vinci (BBC2, 2013) and another about the Hunter brothers (BBC4, 2014). Quentin is a strong supporter, and regular collaborator, of research and practice at the art/anatomy interface. He is Chair of the Management Committee for the Harry Brookes Allen Museum of Anatomy and Pathology at The University of Melbourne, and Vice-President of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists. He is an Associate Editor for Surgical and Radiologic Anatomy, as well as a regular reviewer for a broad variety of anatomical and clinical journals, including sitting on a number of editorial boards.

Supervision Statement

  • Associate Professor Quentin Fogg is a clinical anatomist with particular interests in the detailed anatomy of human limbs. Using dissection, digital modelling, medical imaging and histology, his lab provides anatomical answers to clinical problems. Whilst primarily focused on limbs, the precise skills required for these investigations have been applied to other regions of the body, including the face, abdomen and pelvis. In addition to clinical anatomy research, Quentin has extensive expertise and experience in specialist course development (particularly for active clinicians), educational research (innovations in anatomical education, skills-based anatomy, demonstrator training, etc.), body donor management/preparation, and is a strong advocate and collaborator for work at the interface of arts practice/research and anatomy.
