Healthcare Simulation Center and Summer Premed Research TREK
To apply, please submit your approved resume to this posting and complete the google application form (you will be redirected to the google form upon submitting your application on Handshake).
During this one-day career trek, we will visit Hartford HealthCare's Center for Education, Simulation and Innovation (CESI) located on the Hartford Hospital campus in Hartford, CT on Monday, October 21st (during fall break).
CESI is the largest robotic surgical center in the northeast. Healthcare simulation provides training in a realistic-type environment with life-like robotic patients programmed to simulate various medical conditions (from panic attack to cardiovascular dysfunction). The function of simulated training is to prepare future healthcare providers for the execution of various procedures and techniques in an environment where they can practice repeatedly before executing these on real patients. Simulation exercises are developed to ensure that healthcare providers understand the importance of team based care, clear communication, critical thinking, applied knowledge and a rapid response based on hands-on experiential learning.
This is a 90-minute long guided hands on tour of the center facilitated by multiple knowledgeable CESI staff members and will include interaction with the robotic equipment under the guidance of the staff.
The career trek will also include a 30-60 minute meeting with the Program Coordinator for Hartford Hospital's Summer Premed Research Program. The 10-week program provides students with experience in clinical research, patient treatment and ethical issues in medicine. Students are paired with a research mentor and will have exposure to the healthcare providers within this teaching hospital. (program includes a $2,600-3,000 stipend and dormitory housing is available to out-of-state students)
