Our Services

Medical Education

We provide high-end continuing medical education courses in a state-of-the-art facility.  Over 10,000 physicians pass through our doors each year and are involved in a multitude of courses, many of which highlight our live operating room streaming capabilities or national/international video conferencing services. 


In our anatomical research facility, medical and surgical problems are examined and alternative anatomical solutions developed to solve various issues that face clinicians and surgeons alike.  The Seattle Science Foundation boasts a large group of anatomical and clinical fellows from partnering medical centers who together are helping change the way we move forward with our understanding of human anatomy. This collaborative research and subsequent discoveries have resulted in over 100 peer-reviewed publications per year in major medical journals as well as the publication of many clinical/surgical textbooks. Additionally, the Seattle Science Foundation houses the editorial offices of the The Spine Scholar as well as the journal Clinical Anatomy (the official journal of the American Association of Clinical Anatomists).

Clinical Anatomy Consultations
The Seattle Science Foundation engages with clients to tackle their most challenging issues, drives change and delivers customized solutions to meet your needs. Our facility engages physicians and other professionals to help answer any anatomical questions with the bottom line of improving patient care.


Surgical and Technological Innovations

From our 21 station cadaveric operating suite, we partner with various surgical specialties to develop innovative teaching methods that enable surgeons to practice new procedures on realistic anatomical models.  In addition, we work with industry to improve surgical instruments, devices and technologies to improve patient care.

Fellowship Training

The Seattle Science Foundation is now accepting applications for the position of clinical anatomy research fellow. Anatomical fellows will be involved with cadaveric dissections in our state of the art facility, data analysis, literature reviews and synthesis of drafts of scientific papers. Full-time clinical anatomists will oversee the daily activities of the fellows. No prerequisite background in dissection is required. Backgrounds in the biological sciences are preferred and positions are available for all post-professional degrees. Fellowship openings are for three months to two year intervals. International applicants must have appropriate visas in place before applying.  The SSF is unable to provide guidance or assistance with visas.
