Solomon Segal

Doctor of Medicine; Senior Lecturer of Anatomy

Solomon is a medically trained neuroanatomist and joined AECC University College in 2018 as a Senior Lecturer of Anatomy. He currently teaches in the across schools and oversees the teaching of Anatomy in the AECCUC Prosection Laboratory to students from other Higher Education Institutions.


Solomon graduated in Medicine in 1985 and received training in Neurology and Neurosurgery. He received advanced postdoctoral training in Anatomy applied to Microneurosurgery at Saint Louis University and the Practical Anatomy Workshop of Saint Louis University (Saint Louis, MO, USA). Additional training included postdoctoral research in Geriatric Neuropsychiatry and Translational Neuroscience at Columbia University (New York, NY, USA). He has been teaching anatomy since 1994. Previous research work included quantitative neuroimaging studies of brain aging and dementia, therapeutic mechanisms of deep brain stimulation, animal models of developmental neuropsychiatric illnesses and methods of study and visualization of white matter fibres with polarising microscopy and digital image processing.

Solomon is currently lecturing on the Masters in Chiropractic MChiro course. He leads the following course units at AECC University College:

205 – Human Function and Dysfunction II

206 – Human Structure III

RAD 403 – Anatomy and Physiology for the Radiographer
