Flash Medical Center, a one-day hands-on experience for high school students interested in a healthcare-related field, returns to Kent State University at Ashtabula on Friday, October 12, 2018.
Last year, over 20 students from Ashtabula and Lake Counties participated in the inaugural event, which transformed Robert S. Morrison Hall into a “hospital” and simulated a “day in the life” of health care workers in the areas of nursing, radiology, physical therapy, occupational therapy and respiratory care. Activities involved a simulated injury, patient transfers, use of X-ray machinery and patient recovery and therapy.
“The uniqueness of the event and its hands-on nature is really appealing to the students,” said Amanda Dolan, director of enrollment management and student services. “They get a taste for what the career is like and the teamwork involved amongst the different disciplines in a hospital setting.”
Additionally, students who attend will have the opportunity to apply for an exclusive scholarship.
Interested students are encouraged to apply for the limited number of spaces available soon.
