      Meet the Cadaver 2019

      Join Alpert Medical School's chapter of the Student National Medical Association and Pathways to Medicine as we host our annual event, Meet the Cadaver. High school students will join volunteers from R.I. medical, nursing, pharmacology, and physician’s assistant programs in the Brown cadaver lab, clinical skills suites, and classrooms to learn about human health and healthcare, and to see what life is like on the way to becoming a health professional. Students will rotate through four different stations, each lasting 30 minutes. The stations are: Clinical Skills Introduction: students learn what the vital signs mean and how to take them (pulse, respiratory rate, blood pressure). Cadaver Presentations: students cycle through 5 stations in the anatomy lab to see and learn about the human body. The stations are “Limbs,” “Brain,” “Heart, Liver, Lungs,” “Thorax and Abdomen,” and “X-Ray.” Career Panel: medical, nursing, and pharmacy students will talk to students about their experiences and answer questions. Case Presentation: students will learn and practice medical interviewing with a standardized patient.
