ALC's Advanced Anatomy and Physiology Class and the Medical Forensics Class traveled to SLC to tour the Cadaver Lab at the University of Utah last Friday. They braved the storm, with the help of our wonderful bus driver, Carl. It was well worth braving the storm!!!
Students were able to handle different organs and see how medical students and anatomists work on cadavers. It was very interesting and a great educational opportunity for the students.
The students are told at the beginning, that the cadavers they see are people who have donated their bodies to science. You could feel the amount of respect for these people who make it possible for us to learn more about the body through their sacrifice. The students were given the person's name, age, how they died, and occupation. This information made it very personal and made the experience even better.
THANK YOU TO U OF U FOR ALLOWING OUR STUDENTS TO COME AND FOR THE BUS DRIVER, CARL, FOR DRIVING US SAFELY TO AND FROM SALT LAKE!!
