The purpose of the FISH Program is to service area high schools and colleges by providing an educational opportunity for students. The goal of the program is to educate students about alternative health care careers while also providing them with a unique learning experience in the area of anatomy and physiology. Students will be able to participate in a hands-on presentation with a pre-dissected human cadaver and they will also be introduced to the impressive facilities and personnel available to all students pursuing their academic education at National University.
“This is such a privilege – it is well beyond what I could offer at our high school – and yet it is perfectly aligned with our learning objectives.” – Glenbard South High School
“Awesome presentation – very thorough and extensive. The doctor was terrific – worked well with the kids.” – Providence Catholic High School
“The presentation was extensive and adaptive to the academic level of my students.” – Lyons Township High School
The FISH program is available during the fall and spring semesters on specific dates and times during the week. The program lasts 90 minutes and includes a 30-minute presentation Introduction to Alternative Healthcare Careers followed by a 60-minute anatomy lecture and demonstration with a pre-dissected human cadaver.
