Registration Underway for LECOM's Human Body Explored Program

Considering a career in the medical field? Ever thought of becoming a physician, pharmacist or dentist? High school students can get a first-hand look at what it takes to be a medical practitioner though the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine’s Human Body Explored (HBE) program.

HBE is a comparative anatomy and physiology course that includes hands-on laboratory activities. Students will learn from current students and faculty in LECOM’s Problem Based Learning curriculum and get the chance to visit local hospitals, research institutions and medical offices.

Hands-on laboratory activities are a big part of LECOM's Human Body Explored program, which is currently taking registrations.

“Participating in LECOM’s HBE program really solidified what I wanted to do,” says Morgan Pyne a Lakewood Ranch High School graduate who attended the HBE program and is now a second-year medical student at LECOM's Bradenton campus. “Looking back, it really prepared me for what I am studying today.”

Program registration is currently underway. The program takes place the first or second Tuesday of each month Jan.-May, 5:15-8 p.m. at LECOM’s campus at 5000 Lakewood Ranch Blvd. in Bradenton, FL. Cost is $150.
