The Human Body Explored is a comparative anatomy/physiology course designed as an introductory pre-med/pre-science course for high school students.

Students meet once a month from October-May at LECOM Bradenton's campus, 5000 Lakewood Ranch Blvd. HBE begins Oct. 13.

The goals for the HBE course are:

  • To stimulate and inform students about career opportunities in medicine and the biological sciences, especially the neurosciences:
  • To provide a rare opportunity to examine anatomical differences between the human body and selected animal species; and
  • To prepare students to compete in the Kid’s Judge Neuroscience Fair.

A laboratory component provides hands-on experiments related to the lecture topic. LECOM Bradenton medical students are the instructors in the laboratory.

The cost of the program is $125. Checks should be made out to LECOM Bradenton Post 881 and forwarded to Russell Sexton, Ph.D., 5000 Lakewood Ranch Blvd., Bradenton, FL 34211.

For more information, please contact Dr. Russell Sexton at (941) 756-0690 or
