Department of Emergency Medicine hosts the 5th Annual Medical Explorers Day!
May 26, 2017 MCW News - On May 13, the Department of Emergency Medicine teamed up with the Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Metro Milwaukee to host the 5th annual Medical Explorers Day! It was a morning filled with learning about various career options in the medical field as well as careers in the pre-hospital setting. The group of adults and adolescents learned how to start IVs, wear personal protective equipment, do simple physical exam skills and even how to intubate! They also learned about the process of managing a critically ill trauma patient and what our roles are pre-hospital and within the hospital.
Volunteers included nurses, technicians, communicators, resident physicians, advanced practice providers, medical students and attending physicians from the emergency department. Additional volunteers included the Wauwatosa Fire Department and Flight For Life Team.
