John S. Battle High School Students Visit The Edward Via College of Osteopathic

Students posing with a VA Tech statue.John S. Battle High School Anatomy and Physiology recently visited The Edward Via College of Osteopathic Medicine (VCOM) at Virginia Tech.

The students spent the day experiencing modules on Human Genetics and Disease, Parasites, The Simulation Center and the Gross Anatomy (cadaver) Lab. JSB students engaged with VCOM faculty as well as medical students throughout the day. Students learned how Doctors of Osteopathy (D.O.) practice a 'whole body' approach to illness and the human condition rather than the more medicinal approach that a Medical Doctor (M.D.) may take. The entire experience was captivating!
