By teaching anatomy well, surgeons can serve as an example to the medical students, who may gain a new perspective about our lives and the rewards of a surgical career. Surgeons can provide clinical adjuncts, offer assistance to the professional anatomists and anatomy course directors, and work with the students early in their curriculum. This system has the potential to benefit everyone.
