Each semester, a local orthopedic surgeon comes to Roanoke and performs a joint dissection with the students. The surgeon and students together, conduct a dissection on a cadaver done in our own Human Anatomy and Physiology Lab. During the dissection process, questions and discussion on the movements and responsibility of the areas they are analyzing and its material are highly encouraged. This valuable resource enables students to relate class material to a more hands-on, practical setting.
“Roanoke College provides its students with the opportunity to interact on a personal level with the faculty. There are a number of professors on campus who motivated me on a daily basis, especially within the health and human performance department,” says Dowell.
