The Anatomy and Physiology class will be holding its Fall 2016 Field Trip on November 20-22, 2016. Students enrolled in either the Fall 2016 block schedule or fourth period (i.e., 11:40 am - 12:30 pm class meeting time) year-long class are eligible to attend. (All other students will be eligible to attend the Spring 2016 Field Trip.) Students will be visiting Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine and Virginia-Maryland College of Veterinary Medicine, both in Blacksburg, Virginia, on Monday, November 21, 2016. Anatomy students will be included in lecture, labs, and current research while there. Students will also take part in a discussion with admissions counselors and current medical students so they can better understand what life is like preparing for a career in medicine. Field Trip attendance will, in part, fulfill requirements for dual enrollment course credit.
