The Body Basics program is designed to promote community at the CU School of Medicine. Students interested in the field of pediatrics will be given an invaluable opportunity to interact with children similar to those encountered in the profession. Students interested in the field of surgery will be given an opportunity to perform live dissections in front of a group. Body Basics members will share their knowledge of the basic sciences with fifth grade students in the community. In addition, the Body Basics program will give medical students a chance to represent the School of Medicine as men and women for others, thereby creating ties between the city of Omaha and Creighton University School of Medicine.
