Pulse of Surgery

Kids can participate in live open-heart surgery – from almost anywhere!

In Pulse of Surgery, students grades 7-12 will link to a live open-heart surgery performed by a medical team at Jewish Hospital at the Kentucky Science Center or at your school.

During real-time surgery, students and teachers will interact with the surgeon, nursing staff, perfusionists, and others in the operating room, while learning about the procedure, the tools used, and the techniques that must be mastered in order to perform a successful open-heart surgery.

Students will meet local experts in health care and discuss the importance of healthy lifestyle choices. Program includes pre- and post-visit curriculum guides, student workbooks, and resource DVDs. Last year’s dates filled up quickly, so book now!

Or connect from your school!

Connect to this unique program via videoconference from your school. Your students will see the same surgery connection as the live program at the Science Center, and will be able to submit questions via online chat. Program also includes the pre- and post-visit curriculum guides, a surgical video to reference in the classroom, and student workbooks.

Program support from Jewish Hospital & St. Mary’s Foundation, Greater Louisville Medical Society and Medical Society Professional Services.
