The High School Experience has been designed to introduce groups of high school students (groups not to exceed 25 students) to health care careers and professions. This is an interactive, two-hour simulation-based learning experience offered twice per month, the first Monday (9 – 11 a.m.) and Friday (Noon – 2 p.m.) of every month.
The session includes an overview of health care careers and provides an opportunity to learn more through customization of your experience by selecting from the following engaging activities:
Pharmacy Phun: "Fill" medication orders and explore the role of pharmacy in health care.
Sounds of Your Body: Using the newest technology, listen to the sounds of the heart and lungs with a stethoscope on a computerized manikin to explore the role of direct patient care providers (i.e. physician, nurse, respiratory therapist, etc.).
Virtual Reality: Explore the human body or the immune system in the ultimate 3D experience, while exploring the role of technology in health care education and practice.
VAMS CPR: Resuscitate your unresponsive patient by providing chest compressions on a Voice-Assisted Manikin which encourages your every move.
Gown & Glove Relay: Race against your peers as you put on the personal protective equipment worn by health care providers.
Internal Organ Puzzle: Using an anatomical model, put the puzzle of organs back into the body while learning some fun facts about them.
Please Note: If you are interested in an individual job shadow/observer experience, please request an individual observational experience.
