Short description

Align SNOMED and the FMA

Starting year


Ending year



Review the anatomy redesign work undertaken by the IHTSDO, and its alignment to the Foundational Model of Anatomy (FMA), which is being developed by the Structural Informatics Group at the University of Washington (UW).

SNOMED CT has recently focused developments on restructuring the anatomy content. The approach taken has been to align the anatomy content in SNOMED CT to the FMA. As part of these developments we wish to assure the SNOMED CT content, and its alignment to the FMA.
