JOHNSON CITY, Tenn. -

ETSU opens its door for local Hispanic students to participate in their "Simulated Medicine in Action" summer camp program, June 9 through 13 from 9a.m. to 3p.m.

The unique program invites students who are rising high school juniors, seniors or college freshman.

The event is scheduled to take place in the simulation lab at ETSU's James H. Quillen College of Medicine.

The experience allows students the unique opportunity to take on the role of a primary health care provider as they take care of simulated "patients".

The camp program stresses the importance of many aspects of health care, from assessing vital signs, patient history, physical exams, phlebotomy, lab tests, imaging, suturing, CPR and trama, as well as provider-patient relationship and critical thinking.
