Fetal Pig Dissection

Yesterday and today students conducted a dissection of a fetal pig. On Monday all classes began by making an incision along the pig's abdomen and opening up the rib cage by cutting on either side of the sternum. A & D blocks finished with their pigs by removing the digestive, excretory, respiratory and circulatory systems. Students looked at the organs using a dissecting scope. Some students elected to remove the brain of their pigs (Charlotte and Sam/Cammie's groups were very successful).

C block will finish with the dissection during lab tomorrow. There will be a pop-ish quiz on the dissection (identifying parts AND their functions).
