Anatomy- and physiology-based science outreach for K-12 and post-secondary students is a significant component of the Department of Anatomy, Cell Biology and Physiology mission at Indiana University School of Medicine. The department offers group tours of the gross anatomy laboratory, skeletal and anatomical model collections, physiology laboratories and non-human and fossil comparative and functional skeletal collections upon request for authorized educational organizations.
A variety of different tours are available to provide students with a hands-on laboratory experience. A per-student fee collected from these tours help cover graduate student travel costs to attend scientific meetings to present their anatomy and physiology education research. Limited needs-based financial assistance may be available to qualifying groups.
