Boston Leadership Institute: Emergency Medicine

Wellesley, MA

Overview

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.
