Salina Students Tour Cadaver Lab

KSAL StaffMarch 11, 2016

Students from Salina South High School recently toured the cadaver lab and biology department at Cloud County Community College.

The college offers these cadaver visits as a way to get high school students more interested in studying biology and other sciences at the college level. The students get the opportunity to meet and interact with college faculty and current Cloud students.

“I believe the visiting students have an opportunity to explore some of the experiences they can have at Cloud, such as being involved in studying the human body with the cadavers,” said Cloud Science instructor Josh Urban. “Very few institutions nationwide offer opportunities like these for freshmen and sophomores at the undergraduate level.”

Cloud is one of only two community colleges in Kansas to have a cadaver lab, offer a human dissection course, and utilize the cadavers in the human anatomy course. Each year, 250 to 300 high school students tour the lab and listen to a presentation from Urban. Tours can be arranged by contacting the science department or Urban at [email protected]
