NSU University School Students Gain Hands-On Medical Experience

NSU University School Upper School students in the NSU Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine (NSU-KPCOM) Fellowship have been participating in hands-on learning experiences under the guidance of NSU medical professionals. The Fellows recently participated in a suture demonstration led by Nicholas Lutfi, D.P.M anatomy department chair at the NSU Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine. Students received an overview of each surgical tool and learned proper suturing techniques. The Medical Fellows also had the opportunity to participate in a simulation lab led by Noel Alonso, MD and his medical students. Fellows learned how to take and monitor important vital signs, received a step-by-step intubation demonstration, and experienced a virtual reality childbirth simulation. These invaluable opportunities provide the knowledge and skills students will need as they continue to develop their passion for medicine and work toward a career in healthcare.
