Anatomy: inside and out

Each year the anatomy class goes to Atlanta to see real dead bodies.

Students look forward to this learning experience every year for the involvement in something extraordinary. The trip to ‘BODIES: The Exhibition’ is used as an end-of-the-year wrap-up to pull all the knowledge students obtained in the classroom and stitch it together in real life. The pictures they saw of stomach cancer in their textbooks can now be seen in real life and how it actually looks like in a once living person.

Beth Smith, a junior in Mrs. Gray’s Anatomy class said, “I’m excited to put everything I’ve learned in the classroom to use and to understand the dependability of all the systems in the human body.” Inside the Exhibition, each room is dedicated to different stages of cancer, pregnancy, and other things that happen inside the body.

Dr. Mehmet Oz, Oprah Medical Correspondent, said, “The Exhibition brings the magic of creation into clear focus. I was reminded of the awe-felt moment in Anatomy class when we first presented our cadavers. Now Atlanta can taste medical school.” The trip is more than just missing school for a day; it’s a day to apply explicit knowledge of the human body.

The whole point of the field trip to Atlantic Station, 265 18th St., Atlanta is to get a new perspective on the human body in a visual fashion.
