DESCRIPTION

 

Medical school training has changed dramatically the last decade with the incorporation of simulated technology, informatics and the emphasis of compassiontate patient care. What does it feel like to be a 21st century medical student? During Mini-Medical School, attendees will hear from second-year student Dylan Sabb, and learn how training in a mock hospital sets the College of Medicine – Phoenix apart by allowing students to practice skills on state-of-the-art, high-fidelity mannequins.

Mini-Medical School attendees will learn the step-by-step process of “scrubbing in” before a surgery, test their skills at suturing and tying surgical knots and interact with an obstetrics simulation mannequin from the college’s Center for Simulation and Innovation. With more than 6,000 applicants for only 80 spots in medical school, Dylan will share how to best prepare for a successful career in medicine.
