Which organs are involved in digestion and the absorption of nutrients? What is the difference between mechanical and chemical digestion? The students learn this and more as they help their patients.


When your patients eat, what happens before the food leaves the body? Students learn about the important functions of digestive organs such as the pancreas, and concepts such as bile and enzymes.
