Body Basics Summer Institute – Currently Full
June 15-19, 8:00am-12:30pm
Are you interested in pursuing a career in medicine or the health sciences, but unsure if you would like and excel in the required courses? Maryville’s Body Basics gives you an introduction to college-level science and medical school courses, with a focus on anatomy – one of the most intimidating subjects. This week-long program focuses on some of the key anatomy topics covered in health science fields, such as physical and occupational therapy, nursing, and medicine. In small groups, students interact with models, bones, tissue specimens, and cadavers, while asking questions and making thoughtful observations. They also investigate the anatomical sciences using cadavers – active participation that fosters scientific engagement. At all levels of interest, students develop a hands-on respect for life and the human body.
