oin me in creating the best chiropractic basic sciences learning facilities in the western United States for the benefit of our current and future students – the next generations of chiropractors. Success with our Gross Anatomy Lab Capital Campaign will bring technological and environmental advances that improve both teaching and learning outcomes.
The heart of our project is to acquire four digital dissection tables by Anatomage. These highly technological devices capture every system in the human body and translate them digitally for countless variations in classroom instruction. They are truly amazing and will help students grasp fundamental gross anatomy in new and intricate ways.
We remain fully committed to the important tactile experiences and lessons students gain from actually touching the human form. Our project calls for the acquisition of new cadavers and several sets of cadaver bones. One of the cadavers will be utilized for an in-depth dissection procedure that will be recorded and made available to students at Life West and other educational institutions.
We will also acquire high-definition recording and display equipment throughout the anatomy labs so that students can not only view instruction while in class, but they can also use digital technology to review class materials in the labs or remotely.
This campaign holds the promise of exciting educational advances for the next generation of chiropractors. As you can see from the thermometer in this post, we are more than 65% of the way to our goal. Each contribution or multi-year pledge moves us closer to our goal of completing this campaign by year’s end, acquiring the equipment, making the upgrades, and advancing our students’ education.
