Students try their hand in surgery at Our Lady of Lourdes
Ascension Episcopal School
Anatomy and Physiology classes at Ascension traveled to Our Lady of Lourdes with their teacher, Rachael Futch, for a Healthcare Symposium. Students experienced firsthand how medical professionals use their knowledge of anatomy and physiology to care for patients. They witnessed everything from the emergency department to the operating room, where the students dressed in scrubs and tried their hand with some surgical equipment! They also spoke with doctors, nurses, and various administrative personnel who shared their experiences and gave them insight into what it takes to pursue a career in healthcare.
Exposure to various professions and professionals gives our students opportunities to learn through experience. A huge thanks to the hospital for sharing its expertise with our students and faculty!
When it comes to our children, one of the most important gifts we can provide for them is opportunity. It not only prepares them for their future but also gives them the independence to discover and define who they are: who they want to be. Our faculty and staff focus on developing the whole child, with a curriculum designed to teach lifelong learning skills.
