NCC/ONSF Lab Collaborate for 6th Consecutive Year
Posted On: Saturday, April 27, 2019

Norwalk Community College (NCC) Physical Therapy Assistant students attended a course provided by ONSF entitled “Observation of Upper and Lower Extremity Dissection with Clinical Instruction.” The course took place at the ONSF Arthroscopy Surgical Skills and Biomechanical Research Lab on April 4th & 5th and April 25th & 26th.

Dr. Paul Sethi, Orthopedic Surgeon and ONSF president, mentored the 18 students along with a team of other surgeons. The students enhanced their education by exploring the anatomy first-hand instead of learning only through text books. The following are quotes from student evaluations of the course:

“...The whole experience was awesome and greatly reinforced what we learn in the classroom.”

 “I never thought I would experience something like this ever in my life!...I loved the experience of being able to be hands on and really see what we are learning and that they weren't just pictures in a text book.”

“Once in a lifetime opportunity to get a look inside the body to better understand the mechanics and anatomy.”

“I loved how the surgeons really engaged us to identify what the structures were ...I loved that we really got to dig in there and see real muscles especially because I never thought I’d get the opportunity to do this!”
