Atlanta medical program exposes students to many facets
from Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Visitors to Gwinnett Technical College in mid-April may have been surprised to find themselves not on a college campus but in the middle of a hospital zone. From EMTs helping blood-covered accident victims to a surgery in progress, various areas of the Lawrenceville, Georgia, campus became a medical center for the day during a simulation designed to give students in the Health Sciences program the feel of working with real patients in critical situations. For years, individual programs including radiology, nursing, ultrasound and respiratory care have hosted their own simulation days. But four years ago, faculty brainstormed about combining their individual events into one.
