The Center for Experiential Learning at the
East Tennessee State University
Quillen College of Medicine
presents the annual summer camp, Simulated Medicine in Action
for rising high school juniors, seniors, and college freshmen
This one-of-a-kind experience will allow students the opportunity to take on the role of primary healthcare provider as they care for their patients in a setting that closely mimics the emotional and physical characteristics of a hospital or clinic.
This week-long camp will emphasize the following aspects of healthcare:
|Patient History||Physical Examination|
|Assessing Vital Signs||Process of Diagnosis|
|Phlebotomy||Common Laboratory Tests|
|Simulated Patient Visits||CPR and Trauma|
|Critical Thinking in Medicine||Provider-Patient Relationship|
On the final day, students will experience simulated morning rounds, seeing standardized patients alongside attending physicians. In the afternoon, they will be responsible for running a simulated emergency department.
Come join us for this truly unique opportunity to discover the realities of what it means to actively participate in healthcare!
There is no cost to attend this workshop. Camp will run each day (M-F) from 9 am to 3 pm. Students will need to pack a lunch each day and provide their own transportation. We would be happy to answer any questions addressed to the SMIA team at our email account: firstname.lastname@example.org
