Students visit Shipley Medical Simulation Center at Newton-Wellesley Hospital and are taught how to intubate a patient. They put their skills to the test after performing physical exams on interactive medical mannequins.
Students learn the fundamentals of the physical exam as they perform pulse, blood pressure, oxygen saturation, and respirations on their fellow participants in training.
