About this Event

Tufts Veterinary, Medical, Dental, Physician Assistant, DPT,MPH, and Masters in Biomedical Sciences students are invited to attend!
Tufts University’s Student Health Clubs are organizing the 6th Annual Comparative Anatomy Exchange Day. The theme for this year’s event will be the GI system.
Veterinary students will travel to Tufts Boston campus to share a comparative anatomy session in the morning that will be co-taught by veterinary, dental and medical students. After lunch (provided!), attendees will go to the new, state- of-the-art Michael J Gross Anatomy Lab to learn about the anatomy of many species including: human, dog, cat, pig, horse, cattle, sheep, and birds.
Previous events have been a huge success, as students and faculty from each school enthusiastically asked questions. Many of those in human dentistry and medicine were shocked to learn of the anatomical similarities among humans and animals, along with the reasons for the differences. The day also provides a wonderful introduction to the value of One Health approaches and the positive impact of interprofessional consideration of topics such as animal models, zoonosis, food safety, climate change, and many others.
DUE TO THE POPULARITY OF THIS EVENT PRE- REGISTRATION WILL BE REQUIRED.
