Dr. Thomas Klonisch teaches Anatomy at the Dept. of Human Anatomy & Cell Science (HACS) and contributes to a graduate course in Parasitology at the Dept. of Medical Microbiology & Infectious Diseases (MMID), University of Manitoba. He is the co-author of two books on Neuroanatomie transparent (German) and Sobotta Clinical Atlas of Human Anatomy and continues to serve as the German to English translator of the Sobotta Atlas of Human Anatomy. During his headship at HACS, the gross anatomy facility has undergone a $2.4 Mill renovation in 2018/19. Dr. Klonisch’s main teaching topics are gross anatomy of the head/neck and sensory systems as well as medical histology. He teaches to students in different undergraduate programs (e.g., Medicine, Dentistry, Pharmacy, Physician Assistants, Respiratory Therapy, Bachelor of Health Sciences programs) and graduate students at the Faculty of Health Sciences. In his role as the director of the Histomorphology & Ultrastructural Imaging service platform he and his dedicated team of experts train College apprentices and University undergraduate and graduate trainees in histological methods and imaging procedures. In the Anatomy graduate teaching program, he focuses mainly on teaching head & neck gross anatomy, histology, and electron microscopy.
Dr. Sabine Hombach teaches gross anatomy, neuroanatomy and histology to undergraduate and graduate students in the health sciences. She leads the graduate course for Morphological Techniques at the Department of Human Anatomy and Cell Science. She has co-authored two books: Neuroanatomie transparent (German) and the Sobotta Clinical Atlas of Human Anatomy and continues to serve as the German to English translator of the Sobotta Atlas of Human Anatomy. As section head for clinical anatomy she has introduced a soft-embalming method to facilitate clinical procedural training for residents. In collaboration with clinical colleagues Dr. Hombach has established cadaver-based anatomy training for clinical residents in emergency medicine and obstetrics and gynecology. Dr. Hombach was awarded the Manitoba Medical Student Association (MMSA) Teaching Award for “Best Teaching in the Small Group Setting” in the years 2018 and 2020. She is engaged in regular community outreach activities such as the Discovery Days in Health Sciences and the Brain Bee event of the Manitoba Neuroscience Network and was selected for the Soapbox Science event in Winnipeg in 2020.
