Get a behind-the-scenes look at this important resource.

Ohio Dominican University is opening the doors to its cadaver labs to give high school students interested in studying the sciences a behind-the-scenes look at this valuable educational resource. ODU has two cadaver labs available on campus, with one dedicated for use by undergraduate students and the other to be used primarily by its Physician Assistant Studies and Anesthesiologist Assistant Studies master’s programs.

To help introduce students to the advantages, processes and procedures of utilizing a cadaver lab, ODU has scheduled several upcoming visits for interested students and their families. During these visits, students will be able to:

  • Get a firsthand look at ODU’s cadaver labs.
  • Understand the hands-on learning opportunities these labs provide students.
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the human body.
  • Interact with faculty about how students utilize the labs.
  • Learn how these labs are used in an appropriate and respectful manner.

“It is very unique for a university the size of Ohio Dominican to have a cadaver lab on campus, so it’s extremely rare to have two labs available for students to use,” said Kaylee Meade, director of undergraduate admission. “The fact that ODU has a cadaver lab dedicated for undergraduates to use gives students a significant advantage in their educational experience as well as in their preparation for advanced studies in graduate or medical school. We realize many students may not be familiar with cadaver labs, so these visits are designed to introduce them to this valuable resource and share with them the steps taken to ensure these spaces are treated with the utmost respect.”
