Hands-On Learning

Learn basic medical skills and get training on how to handle situations when medical care is not immediately available. Simulations will allow students to learn and practice hands-on medical techniques including positioning and extraction, wound care, control of bleeding, stitches and sutures, usage of splints and slings, and other useful potentially life-saving skills. In small groups, students in a simulated medical team will be required to research the patient’s history and symptoms, create a diagnosis based on their findings, and develop a treatment plan.
