Practice for practitioners: University of Tennessee Medical Center sim lab teaches essential skills to residents, nursing grads
from Knox News
In the 1970s, general surgeon Dr. Henry Nelson learned to tie knots and suture incisions on pigs' feet. While he learned those skills well that way, he's also glad the new surgical residents coming into University of Tennessee Medical Center in the coming weeks have more modern options. During an upcoming "boot camp," the hospital's Advanced Medical Simulation Center will see first-year residents crowd in for true-to-life training on skills they'll likely use often — and a few they may never put into practice.
