Life or death emergency scenes meet the latest breakthrough technologies in emergency medicine in this exciting new program! Students will preview actual case studies of trauma from accident scenes ranging from car accidents to the aftermath of natural disasters such as hurricanes or avalanches.
In cases that require surgical intervention, students will preview anatomical structures and surgical techniques, conducting their own mock surgery and practicing their suturing techniques. They will learn about imaging techniques such as x-rays, MRIs, and techniques used by radiologists to assess the extent and nature of injuries. Teens will examine treatment for burn injuries as well, learning about and practicing immediate life-saving techniques. They will learn about longer-term solutions as well such as skin-grafting and advances from biomedical engineering that employ tissue scaffolding to create sheets of skin that may be used to save the lives of burn victims. Snakebites, drug overdoses, heart attacks...there is seemingly no end to the trauma that our students will vicariously face in their efforts to save lives! Students will also practice CPR, study injury prevention, and learn how to take a patient's vital signs. Additionally, throughout the course, students will brainstorm and work on personal research projects concerning hot button topics in the world of emergency medicine. They will present their work to the group at the end of the three weeks.

“Rony was a wonderful teacher who was truly knowledgeable about the topic of emergency medicine. Handling a real ultrasound on a real human, interacting with an ER simulation and asking EMT’s and an ER doctor about the field were awesome."
"The program of Emergency Medicine gave me a well developed insight into the field I aspire to take part in, but it also gave me enough confidence and experience to act on certain emergency situations that inevitably will occur in times to come.”
"The program was very hands on allowing me to not only absorb the information through lectures, but also while applying it through simulations. I LOVED this program.”
“The program has been truly amazing. Not only did I learn a lot and expand my knowledge of medicine, but I also had fun doing it. Rony truly made this experience unique. He showed interest in our ideas of a future career in medicine. I could not have asked for a better teacher or a better time.”
