You can always find the Healthcare and Medicine students on site, whether by their lab coats or through the smell of formaldehyde! They were hard at work today dissecting a cow eye and a sheep heart. The cow eye dissection, in particular, allowed them to more fully understand the anatomy of the eye, which they had learned a little bit about during their field trip to the UC Berkeley School of Optometry. For many of the students, this was their first time performing a dissection, which is always exciting! While dissecting the sheep heart they learned how to identify particular parts of that anatomy, which can be easily translated to helping them understand the human heart.
