Omaha Central High anatomy students get a taste of real hospital work
Students from Omaha's Central High get a look Friday at what they could encounter at the end of another 10 years or so of school.

In one corner, a group of giggling teenagers snapped pictures of themselves suited up for surgery: zip-up suits, hairnets, shoe booties, face masks and all.
In another, students worked in pairs to maneuver a laparoscopic camera and surgical clamps to practice picking up tiny, hard-to-grasp objects like paper clips and salt packets.
