Dr Amanda Neill is a highly experienced anatomist, teacher, and developer of educational resources. She has written extensively on anatomy, pathology and other paramedical subjects, for students and professionals alike. She lectures widely to undergraduate and postgraduate students and practitioners in medicine, dentistry, physiotherapy and other disciplines. Dr Neill also consults for pharmaceutical companies on medical and health education and pharmacovigilance. She is the secretary of the Australasian College of Biomedical Scientists, which runs seminars in continuing education for medical and legal professionals, as well as scientific seminars on forensic, legal & medical topics.
Dr Neill is passionate about making subjects clear through the use of images, and her belief that ‘a picture tells a thousand words’ informs the approach to the A to Z books, where the guiding principle is to make learning anatomy as straightforward as possible. She is also intensely aware of the needs of those studying anatomy for the first time, and the A to Z books were developed in close collaboration with students.
