Traditional Session

The standard outreach session accommodates up to 50 students for a 1–2-hour session. The session begins with the Anatomy Outreach Team (AOT) facilitators introducing themselves and going over basic rules and etiquette in the lab. The group will rotate through 4 stations of varying topics. We utilize cadavers and isolated organs to talk about important relationships in the body, organ systems, healthy vs. unhealthy tissues, clinical cases, and much more. These sessions are guided by student questions and preferences, we do our best to involve them as much as possible. Facilitators are ecstatic to answer questions about their backgrounds, academic & career plans, the anatomy program, etc.

Through the scheduling process we will gather information about your program and student population, so we are able tailor the session to fit your needs.

Other Sessions/Programs

In addition to our standard outreach session, we also offer school visits with a panel of AOT Facilitators to talk about everything from picking a major in college to career goals and everything in between (does not include cadaveric material). In-person sessions remain at the heart of our program, though we maintain the capability to use virtual means to extend our reach and to continue our commitment to the community regardless of the conditions placed before us.

COSI (Center of Science and Industry)

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Division of Anatomy collaborated with COSI on the modification and creation of a program called “Anatomy in Action” as part of their community-based education workshops. The program has been completely retooled to revolve around “What is anatomy and how is it used clinically?” The new program is a one-hour interactive session split into multiple stations. Each station is career focused and provides relevant anatomy information for a specific region including images, models, and/or specimens. Supplementing the anatomy are clinical cases tied to the relevant anatomy where participants need to determine what is wrong with the patient based on different imaging. The program will also highlight the anatomy program at The Ohio State University and how we are involved in the different health sciences. For more information visit the


“I have been taking my anatomy students to the Outreach Program Opportunity for the last 3 years and every year (including the virtual 2020 year) has been an awesome and educational experience for them. It is by far one of the top highlights of their year in anatomy class!”
-Jenny Niekamp, St. Henry HS

“Students from the All THAT program were totally blown away with the opportunity to learn more about the human body. Those who were curious about the medical field were inspired and all the others gained an experience that they will NEVER forget and that they told others about for days after the visit. Thank you so much for providing such a unique opportunity for our underserved students.”
-Danella Hicks, All THAT
