DaVinci had it right. Biomedical sciences and medical illustration students must observe the human body inside and out to understand the sum of its parts. RIT students learn from dissecting cadavers in the Anatomy and Physiology lab in RIT’s Center for Bioscience Education and Technology.
Human gross anatomy is taught in the fall (for medical illustration majors) and in the spring (for physician assistant and biomedical sciences majors) with the use of cadaver specimens acquired from the University of Rochester's School of Medicine.
The Center for Bioscience Education and Technology (CBET) is the Northeast region's hub for medical-related academic programs, workshops, and summer sessions for K-12 teachers and students, and customized workforce training and professional-development services for the biosciences industry.<
Arranged as a central classroom with mock imaging stations around the perimeter, the Echocardiography Lab provides opportunities for both lecture and skill training for students to learn how to image the heart.
Courses taught in the Health and Life Sciences Lab are managed by the College of Health Sciences and Technology and the College of Science and offered for students in majoring in biomedical sciences, biology, and biotechnology and molecular bioscience.
The mission of the Nutrition Education, Engineering, and Designs (NEEDs) lab is to engineer and design research and evaluation services that foster promotion and delivery of evidence-based health and nutrition education.
Arranged as a central classroom with mock examination stations positioned around the perimeter, the Physician Assistant Lab provides opportunities for lecture and break-out stations that support clinical skill training for physician assistant majors.
The Simulation Laboratory consists of three parts a patient room that contains a simulation mannequin, a control room where operation of the mannequin occurs, and a debriefing room where faculty interact with students after simulated medical scenarios end.
The Fitness Lab houses state-of-the-art equipment utilized by exercise science students to gain hands-on experience conducting fitness assessments and testing. Fitness services, such as fitness assessments, are also provided by exercise science students to the RIT community.
To remain a leader in educating technically sound sonographers, the diagnostic medical sonography program emphasizes not only on the didactic aspect of learning, but also the practical, hands-on, clinical aspect.
