Biography

Students in Anatomy and Physiology I and II are able to learn about careers through job shadowing health care professionals–including nurses, doctors, chiropractors, pharmacists, veterinarians, dentists, physical and other therapists, radiographers,physician assistants, lab techs, and several others–bo that the hospital and private practice settings. Students are transported to specified locations and return 3 hours later. Students continue learning through visiting Health Career Fairs and participating in hands-on health-related activities. For example, students have visited the cadaver lab and the “Bodies Revealed”exhibit for a practical application of their anatomy class in identifying all visible body parts, comparing cadaver parts and possibly determining cause of death. This hands-on experience is one they will never forget. These experiences are priceless, as students prepare for college and choose a major.
