Imagine being able to set a splint, stop a bleed, and perform CPR as a middle school student! Students will learn medical techniques through age-appropriate simulations and guided lessons. In addition, they’ll work with small groups to research a patient’s history and symptoms, create a diagnosis based on findings, and develop a treatment plan.
Discover critical techniques in emergency medicine such as setting a splint and performing CPR.
Work in teams as you research, diagnose, and develop a treatment plan for a "patient".
Explore human anatomy on an Anatomage Table, the world's first virtual dissection table.
