You'll explore health care careers using a state-of-the-art human patient simulator (robot). This interactive experience will allow you to work as on a team to see how medical care is carried out as well as explore the range of health care careers in demand now and in the future.
How do we save the patient? What are the vital signs? Can we get a blood culture? Working alongside medical professionals and Hanover's faculty, you'll explore health care careers and medical education using a state-of-the-art human patient simulator (robot). Working as part of a health care team, you'll try to diagnose and then treat the patient before it is too late! This summer's Health Science Institute will focus on the health science behind human performance. Whether you are an athletic trainer treating a college athlete, an occupational therapist working with a developmentally delayed child, or a surgeon operating to clear the arteries of a stroke victim, you are working to preserve or enhance human performance. From clinical settings to the sports field, and from psychology to everyday wellness, well look at what science can tell us about how the human body performs. Additionally, we'll meet multiple health care professionals who will discuss their education and career paths and share how they deal with issues of human performance in their patients each day.
