Excursions at Yale – Students go to the Fairfield Simulation Center. Their state-of-the-art center promotes the acquisition of basic and advanced clinical skills that are essential for medical students and residents to master.

Topics you'll explore
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.
Throughout the program, meet a variety of experts in the field of healthcare that will provide advice and tips on academic preparation and professional pathways to explore. We will discuss the wide variety of professions within the medical field, such as physical therapy, physician's assistants, phlebotomy and more. Students will get a deeper sense of their unique motivations and aptitudes and how that aligns with potential academic and career choices. This helps students make better informed decisions about some of life’s most important choices.
