Two OSU-CHS student organizations will host a trauma simulation training event to provide medical students practice and perspective on treating trauma patients in both the emergency room and the operating room.
This is the first time the student chapters of American College of Osteopathic Emergency Physicians (ACOEP) and the Student Osteopathic Surgical Association (SOSA) have joined together for the event. Club members and non-members will participate from noon to 3 p.m. in D-107 and breakout rooms.
“ACOEP has previously hosted this event with the focus being on emergency medicine,” said second-year medical student Jordan Wiebe, SOSA president. “This year, we decided to broaden the simulation to encompass not only what happens to a trauma case in the ER, but also what happens when the patient gets to the OR.”
The event will begin with lunch and a lecture by residents who will talk about their area of medicine and their role in trauma services. Participants will divide into groups to visit three stations run by residents, who will discuss intubation techniques, cricothyroid tube placement, surgical anatomy and more.
First- and second-year club members may participate at no extra cost. Non-members and third- and fourth-year students will be asked to contribute $10. To sign up for the event, visit the Trauma Skills Simulation form page.
