ATSU-KCOM military student receives excellence award

July 3, 2019
Posted In: Awards, KCOM, Missouri Campus, Student Headlines, Uncategorized, University Headlines

Following her participation in 2019 Intensive Surgical and Trauma Skills Course (ISTSC) in San Diego, California, military student Crystal Lafleur, OMS III, received the ISTSC Student Excellence Award.

This award is granted to the student participant who demonstrates the best overall performance and teamwork skills throughout the week-long medical military training session.

“This training was as close to deployment as I have seen,” Lafleur said, “it really promotes an understanding of teamwork and commitment in the military students that attend.”

Over the course of the week, more than 40 students from four universities, including A.T. Still University’s Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine (ATSU-KCOM), participated in high-stress, military-style medical simulations and learned about treating traumatic injuries in the field.

In addition to her award, Lafleur completed a bleeding control basics course through the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma designed to teach participants to treat life-threatening, uncontrolled bleeding.

Lafleur is the National Western Representative for the Student Association of Military Osteopathic Physicians and Surgeons and says she encourages all military students to take advantage of this unique, hands-on approach to military medical education.
