The Henry Gray Society of Anatomy takes its name after one of St. George's Hospital Medical School's most revered alumni -- Henry Gray. He was a notable surgeon and anatomist and was the creator of the anatomical atlas used by many worldwide, Grey's Anatomy.
The society aims to promote the learning of anatomy and to foster extracurricular interest in the subject, by means of peer-led anatomy lectures, events featuring renowned guest speakers, and practical workshops.
We are best known for our highly popular Anatomy Lecture Series which occurs anually in the Winter, and seeks to provide the students of St. George's with a sound understanding of preclinical anatomy. We are currently looking to diversify the range of events we hold, and we have recently had a very successful lecture given by Prof Harold Ellis from King's College London School of Medicine, titled "The Wayside Houses of Ill-Fame".
