Students in Ohio Hi-Point’s anatomy and physiology classes, as well as the students in the Health Technology program, experienced a human autopsy, via video conference, through COSI’s In Depth: Autopsy program.
The taped autopsy allowed students a real life learning experience as well as an opportunity to speak and ask questions to a forensic pathologist who was providing a live narration of the procedure.
Students analyzed information gathered during the autopsy as well as the toxicology reports provided by the forensic pathologist to determine a cause of death for the patient.
Ohio Hi-Point students were able to participate in this program thanks to the Pat Roby Academic Teacher Grant received through the Logan County Educational Foundation.
