Bringing anatomy to life

Anatomy Day was the highlight of November for 60 Windsor high school students, as they navigated their way through interactive and informative stations featuring different aspects of the study. Planned and led by the Medicine Class of 2018, Anatomy Day was a confirmed success once again at the Schulich Medicine – Windsor Campus.

Now in its third year, the Day is intended to provide learning opportunities for secondary school students, inspiring them to consider health care as a career option. This year, the traditional anatomy stations were complemented by a panel discussion that included medical and nursing students, a dentist and a physical fitness trainer.

The Day is also a wonderful example of social accountability. “I believe the event provides our students with an opportunity to practise competencies such as leadership and health advocacy,” said Anna Farias, Anatomy Learning Specialist.

The School is hoping to continue Anatomy Day on an annual basis and open its doors to even more Windsor students, so that they too can chase their passion and dreams and possibly become the next health care leaders.
