Personal profile


Dr. Ali Al-Rubaie is a lecturer at the Centre for Human Anatomy Education specialising in applied anatomy and imaging technologies.  He is currently investigating anatomical applications and imaging technology in clinical practice and education, focusing on multiple imaging techniques such as medical imaging (X-ray, CT and MRI - plan and contrast studies) and virtual reality and their use in clinical practice and education.

In 2013, Dr. Al-Rubaie joined the CHAE where he used his extensive experience in neuroanatomy and human donor-based anatomy to teach several courses within and without the department of anatomy and developmental biology.

He established his research theme focusing on neuroanatomy and implementing cutting-edge research techniques in medical imaging. Ali’s skills enabled him to interrogate advances in medical technologies to enable their translation into his workplace.  His research includes collaboration with clinicians, radiographers, psychiatrists and medical educators.

Dr. Al-Rubaie has experience in design and implementation of innovative educational methods in anatomy and health sciences also experience in teaching head-to-toe anatomy. In addition to teaching science, medical, radiography, psychology and allied health students, he has particular expertise in specialist anatomy education and a long history of designing and delivering innovative class and online courses.

Dr. Al-Rubaie leads a research theme that explores the integration between medical imaging and anatomy education research. He is also involved, in particular, with innovations in education (technical), skill-development in anatomy and the training of anatomy educators.

Dr. Al-Rubaie strongly supports and collaborates in research and practice in the field of clinical anatomy. He is a member of the Australian and New Zealand Association of Clinical Anatomists. He is a regular reviewer for many anatomical and clinical anatomy journals.
