On November 20th our fellow Eagles attended the Human Anatomy field trip, a.k.a Sisters In Science.
Sadly, only a select few students went. I asked Becca Glastetter (‘17), one of the select few that have attended this field trip, why she went on the trip and she stated, “Mrs. McFadden invited me and plus, I love Wake Forest so I would never miss a trip to go there!”
Pamela McFadden, the Human Anatomy teacher, said that only six young women that are interested in a medical career attended the trip.
The students went to Wake Forest Baptist Health hospital where they had the opportunity to talk to different medical students. The students gave them some helpful tips on how to succeed in the medical field, led them on a tour of the hospital, and our Eagles were even able to observe the medical students working on labs!
McFadden claimed that the students would get to experience and learn more about what the medical field is like, along with the careers and jobs that would be available to them in the future.
“I’m really excited for learning how the students take on the hospital setting and how they get to interact with patients,” Glastetter said, “I really don’t think it’s anything like Grey’s Anatomy though.”
The students who went have to have at least a little bit of interest in the medical field, and also have to be involved with human anatomy classes at East. “I really have to understand the human body so I can follow my desired career path and succeed,” Glastetter claimed.
“I personally want to be a pediatric nurse,” she stated, which made her a little more excited for the field trip. “Hopefully we’ll go to ICU 4A or 4B because that’s where the pediatric unit is.”
This trip sounds like it was amazing, and I’m considering taking human anatomy next year so I can go on it, even though it has nothing to do with what I want to do when I get out of school. What do you think, Eagles?
