Surgical viewings allow students to observe a surgery in real-time from an auditorium at a Providence site. Types of surgeries include Ortho Watch, Chest Watch, Heart Watch and Brain Watch. The surgeon wears a microphone and speaks directly with the students throughout the surgery. These are designed for high school seniors who are enrolled in either a health occupations course or an advanced placement science class. At least one teacher must attend the surgical viewing with the class.
Teachers request to have a class on the surgical viewing rotation list by contacting Providence School Outreach.
“Thank you for the amazing experience. Seeing the surgery was mindblowing and a once in a lifetime experience. I am very grateful.”

“My students come from a wide range of race and socio-economic backgrounds. Most of my students will be the first to attend college/university…This is an incredibly meaningful opportunity for my students that not only deepened their understanding but will also inspire them to continue to pursue their goal in the medical field.”

"Thank you for hosting Ortho Watch and allowing students like me to immerse ourselves into the healthcare/medical field! I’m beginning to connect my areas of interest (pharmacology/pharmacy) to other areas in the field, and this experience helped me expand me knowledge."
