Watch: Mesquite Students Learn Through Simulated Cadavers

Friday, October 6, 2017

At Horn High School in Mesquite, there's a cadaver in the classroom!

Mesquite Independent School District's Horn High School clinical class have begun learning about anatomy with their new SynDaver synthetic cadaver. The students will start by going through and explain each organ system and how it relates to the other organs in the body. Next, they are going to start on muscles. The goal is to develop a college level gross anatomy type rotation in student groups.
