*Registration payment includes Credit Cards and Interfund Transfers ONLY.

Target Audience

High school students that love science and want to learn more about careers in healthcare.

Description

The success of a student in a medical program relies in part on reading, understanding, and following through with instructions. In addition, comfort working in teams and with dissection is a must as this is often part of preparatory programs. This workshop will explore all of these components as we dissect a fetal pig and compare fetal pig anatomy to human anatomy.

Objectives

  • Students will work together in effective teams of diverse backgrounds.
  • Students will follow an autopsy protocol as they dissect a fetal pig.
  • Students will familiarize themselves with pig anatomy as it relates to humans.
  • Students will use tools typical of dissection as well as electronic balances.
