Spend the first week learning basic medical skills and getting training on how to handle situations when medical care is not immediately available. Simulations will allow you 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.
The second week focuses on being a detective doctor. In small groups, your medical team will be required to research the patient’s history and symptoms, create a diagnosis based on your findings, and develop a treatment plan. This simulation will teach you how to respond to a patient just like a medical professional, assessing information and applying your medical knowledge in high pressure environments.
