For the global health cure course, students examined internal organs of a frog to better understand medicine/treatment.

Why frogs?

Frogs and humans are vertebrates with similar organ systems. Although all the organs are not similar in both frogs and humans, it’s useful to learn about the anatomy through dissection. We compared the frog’s anatomy to our own while investigating treatment/medicine for diseases effecting certain organs. The slide show below show students working on their frog.
