More than 240 science and anatomy students from 12 area high schools visited Good Samaritan during the week of April 26 for the second annual GSH 101 – Introduction to Careers in Health Sciences.
Students spent part of their day in the anatomy lab, where hospital staff and physician volunteers gave them a hands-on anatomy lesson using a human cadaver. In the Emergency Department, students witnessed a trauma simulation including emergency medical personnel, nurses and staff from the laboratory, imaging and respiratory therapy. The teens also heard from staff in many other disciplines, such as sports medicine, information technology and hospital administration.
This preview of health science careers is another aspect of Good Samaritan’s partnerships with area schools, including Arcanum, Brookville, Chaminade-Julienne, Dayton Early College Academy, Wayne (Huber Heights), Miami Valley Career Technology Center, Dixie (New Lebanon), Northmont, Tippecanoe, Tri-County North, Trotwood-Madison and Vandalia-Butler.
