Students are able to get up close and personal with 3 bodies. The program is a joint effort with Kansas City University of Medicine & Biosciences. The department is loaned the bodies from KCUMB for one calendar year. School administrators say this is a great way for students to prepare for graduate education.
"It's an opportunity for them close to home to really get hands on experience and take that after they leave Southern and be more successful in those programs," said Dr. Jennifer Dennis, MSSU Department Chair of Biology and Environmental Health.
This is a senior level course and applications are necessary to enroll. There are currently 12 students in the spring course and 18 students have been accepted for the course in the fall.
