DAYTON, Ohio, April 13 /PRNewswire/ -- More than 130 area high school students representing nine schools will visit Good Samaritan Hospital this week for the hospital's annual health care careers and human anatomy event, Good Samaritan Hospital 101 - Introduction to Careers in Health Sciences.
As part of the hospital's partnerships with area school districts, Good Samaritan will host science and anatomy students from the following local high schools: Arcanum, Brookville, Chaminade-Julienne, Huber Heights (Wayne HS), New Lebanon (Dixie HS), Tipp City (Tippecanoe HS), Tri-County North, Trotwood and Vandalia.
Good Samaritan Hospital 101 will be held April 13-16, with two to three schools attending each day. Half of the day will be spent in the very popular anatomy lab, which will be staffed with medical professionals who will explore details of the human body through hands-on access to cadavers.
"We want these students to get a sense of what goes on behind the scenes in a hospital and understand that there are a wide variety of careers available in health sciences," said Mark Shaker, president and CEO of Good Samaritan Hospital. "The cadaver lab in particular gives students a unique experience that is usually only available to those training to be medical professionals."
During the second half of the day, students will explore emergency medicine, with insights into patient assessments and treatments and the latest in medical technology. Interactive learning opportunities and demonstrations will be offered through experiences in an emergency resuscitation room, an ambulance squad provided by the Trotwood Fire Department, and the hospital's helicopter landing pad. Students also will learn about available volunteer activities at the hospital.
Over the past two years, the Good Samaritan Hospital has developed
partnership agreements with 10 local schools to deliver sport
