The Anatomy and Physiology class will be holding its Spring 2018 Field Trip [block class] on March 26th and 27th, 2018. Students enrolled in the Spring 2018 block schedule class are eligible to attend. Students will be visiting Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine and Biocomplexity Institute, both in Blacksburg, Virginia. 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.

The field trip will begin on Monday, March 26th at 5:00 pm at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center, Abingdon, Virginia. (Once arriving at the Higher Education Center at 5:00 pm on Monday, students should report directly to their bus in the Center's parking lot. There will be no registration and/or meeting inside the Center.) The field trip will conclude on Tuesday, March 27, 2018 at approximately 5:00 pm at the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center.
