Today, the HEAL students learned surgical and medical skills including, venipuncture, intubation and minimally invasive surgical techniques. They had the opportunity to practice on the same equipment used in medical schools. Our talented TA assisted them as they learned the ins and outs of these lifesaving techniques, something most students their age do not have the chance to try. The minimally invasive surgical rotation is always a favorite as they use robotic arms and tablets to practice keeping their hands steady and being precise by playing some challenging games. It’s always fun to see the students expressions as they master a new skill!
