Caroline Wetsel and Makayla Williams at AMC

Take Schoharie Central School's distance learning technology, add classroom instruction and preparation, top with a medical college field trip, and the result is real-world, hands-on education for seniors Caroline Wetsel and Makayla Williams.

Wetsel and Williams, students in the anatomy and physiology class offered via distance learning technology at Schoharie High School, attended a May 2 lecture and lab about the human brain and spinal cord at Albany Medical Center (AMC).

The hands-on lab allowed them to examine preserved body parts and literally see what they've been learning.

In addition to the lecture and lab, Wetsel and Williams toured AMC's Simulation Technology Lab, where medical students learn using responsive mannequins, audio/video review and a procedure room that become a mock intensive care unit, operating room, trauma center and emergency preparedness training space.
