Operation Orange summer camps introduce students to medicine
Medical summer camps for high school students offered by OSU-CHS will officially kick off on Wednesday at Southeastern Oklahoma State University in Durant.
Operation Orange will be offered at five locations across the state to help foster an interest in medicine in Oklahoma students. Camps will also be hosted at Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford on June 6, W.W. Hastings Hospital in Tahlequah on June 10, University of Central Oklahoma in Edmond on June 11 and OSU-Stillwater on June 12.
OSU medical students will teach participants essential skills for being a physician, like understanding anatomy and suturing. Students will also participate in hands-on demonstrations like intubation and listening to a simulation of a heartbeat and respiratory sounds.
