A group of 20 Liberty Christian students traveled to The University of Texas Southwestern Medical School in Dallas on March 25 and participated in a Cadaver Lab with Dr. Justin Northeim, an ER doctor at Baylor Medical in Grapevine, and Russell King, an EMS flight nurse.

Dr. Northeim is also the Medical Director for Grapevine Fire and Rescue, and his EMS paramedics and nurses use the cadavers to learn procedures and stay current in their certifications.

“We were blessed to have the opportunity to come and learn from these cadavers with our Anatomy and Physiology and Advanced Placement Biology students through dissection,” said teacher Jamie Michalek.

The Willed Body Program at UT Southwestern allows people to donate their bodies upon death so that the living can learn from them.

“Many people interested in the medical field do not have this opportunity until they are in their first year of medical school,” said Mrs. Michalek. “We have been extremely blessed to allow our juniors and seniors this opportunity to have a small glimpse of what they will study in medical school.

“Many of the students in the past who have participated in this lab have chosen to go into the medical field and dedicate their lives to the health of others.”
