Joseph N.Aziz is a leading expert in gross and clinical anatomy education. He is contributing to the teaching and assessment of human gross and clinical anatomy and physiology at all levels. He completed his MD of basic medical sciences at School of Medicine 2010, Cairo University. He was selected by Military Medical Academy as leading Anatomist for Education Committee and member of the Court Examiners for the High Schools of Nurses. He was appointed in several academic positions both national and international. At that time, he is an active member of many international societies of Anatomy as American association of clinical anatomy (AACA) Anatomical society (AS) UK and ANZACA . He has served as a member on several scientific journal Editorial Boards and panel of reviewer of many journal in the field of anatomy.

Research Interest

His research interest is involving the field of the clinical anatomy. Interests in clinical anatomy become the key stone of his teaching strategy using modern imaging techniques (CT- scan, MRI and Ultrasound). He is continuing to develop momentum in this research area and have published and presented regularly on this topic at international scientific conferences.
