ATSU-KCOM students enjoy a fun learning experience with a holiday-themed simulation lab

January 16, 2019
Posted In: KCOM, Missouri Campus, Student Headlines, Uncategorized, University Headlines

A.T. Still University-Kirksville College of OsteopathicMedicine’s (ATSU-KCOM) Clinical Simulation Medicine Club hosted the second annual holiday-themed simulation lab event on Thursday, Jan. 10, 2019. First- and second-year students were invited to participate, and small groups worked through five different cases congruent with holiday scenarios.

Often times, the event is the first experience in the Drabing Human Patient Simulation lab for first-year students, so they were paired with second-year students who mentored them during each scenario. Through the festively decorated lab, students encountered Santa Claus with diabetic ketoacidosis from eating too many cookies. They found grandma, who had been run over by a reindeer in the immersion room. Also, the Grinch made an appearance to visit his ailing brother.

“It’s a fun break to clear their heads, but in an educational way,” said Lisa Archer, RN, BSN, director of simulation &performance assessment. “We call it edu-tainment.”

    Oh how I wished we had all these new teaching tools when I was a student.
