U of U Med School & Cadaver Lab

Submitted by anna.palmer on Tue, 03/18/2014 - 13:31

Our ALC Pre-Med students traveled to the University of Utah Medical School and Cadaver Lab for a field trip. Students gloved up and went to work as medical students guided them through some human cadavers. They were able to handle organs and view the internal cavities of patients who donated their bodies for educational purposes. Then students went into the Medical School to see where students become MDs and surgeons. They topped off this great learning experience with lunch at City Creek.
