"The study of anatomy is a keystone in the foundation of a physician's education. We never stop learning, and the human body inspires us to investigate, learn and apply new knowledge in order to enhance all aspects of medical care. It is fully commensurate with Duke core missions of excellent patient care, innovative education and translational research."
