About Me

Amanda McBride, PhD joined the Department of Biomedical Sciences as a Master Lecturer and teaches gross anatomy to first and second year medical students as well as facilitating an active learning group. She also is involved in teaching anatomy related topics in CMSRU's summer pipeline programs. Dr. White earned her doctorate degree in Anatomy from Penn State University College of Medicine in Hershey, PA. In addition to her research in traumatic spinal cord injury, she was trained as an anatomy educator and is well versed in teaching clinically orientated medical gross anatomy (both didactic and lab dissection), histology, embryology, and neuroanatomy. After receiving her doctorate, she pursued a postdoctoral position at Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University where she continued to do research and teach medical gross anatomy. Although she does not currently do research at CMSRU, her interests lie in the pathological alterations that occur within the enteric nervous system following traumatic spinal cord injury, and she hopes to pursue such interests in the future.
