High School Students Gets “Hands On” Medical Training Today at the Intermountain Simulation Center at LDS Hospital For Upcoming Haiti Humanitarian Trip

The purpose of the training is to prepare the student volunteers in the state-of-the-art Simulation Lab at LDS Hospital so they can assist in surgeries during the upcoming medical mission to Haiti. They will be acting as surgical technicians and circulators in the OR under the watchful eye of trained medical professionals. 

In past missions the training has been on-the-job, but by allowing for this training experience in the Intermountain Simulation Center, organizers hope to drastically improve the learning curve while ensuring the students are as best trained as possible.
