Pulse of Surgery Field Trip

On Wednesday, May 2nd, the 7th and 8th graders traveled to the Kentucky Science Center to watch a live open heart surgery thanks to the Pulse of Surgery program.  Students learned about various careers in the healthcare field, chatted with doctors, nurses and others in the OR about the open heart surgery they saw and their careers and even held some of the tools used in the surgery (like the sternum saw).  Students left with an increased understanding of how the human body works and the requirements to enter the healthcare field.
