Prep Medical Magnet students took a field trip this week to the UCI Medical Center. We had a wonderful talk about the history of medicine and how far it has advanced as a result of technology. The students were then trained in suturing, laparoscopic procedures, virtual simulations, and had to opportunity to play with a $2M toy – the Da Vinci Robot, a less invasive surgical aid. At lunch, the students had the opportunity to speak with current medical students at UCI and asked lots of questions about college, curriculum, and planning. Thank you to David Karnes, our host for the day at UC Irvine. Please enjoy his photos of our trip by clicking here.
