Parker School Anatomy and Physiology classes recently had the opportunity to go to North Hawaii Community Hospital and experience first hand what it is like to work in a medical profession.

The theme of the visit was directly related to the current area of study, the skeletal system.

The education coordinator at North Hawaii Community Hospital, Leslie Dietz arranged for members of the Orthopedic, Radiology, and Rehabilitation departments to speak to the students. They provided a tour of the hospital, focusing on these areas.

Dr. Diane Payne, an Orthopedic Surgeon prepared a slide show and presentation for the class. Pam Adams, the rehabilitation leader also gave a presentation. Radiologist Dr. Ainge showed students some images using top of the line technology. They also got to visit the Medical Imaging center and learned about MRI’s.

All of the members of the hospital were extremely impressive, professional and very friendly to the students.

“It really intrigued the students and will hopefully encourage them to consider a career in Health and Medicine,” said Tina Doherty, Parker School’s Biology and Anatomy teacher.
