Health Sciences Summer Camp 2021

8 min read

Offered for the first time at the RELLIS Campus, the three-day camp introduced local seventh and eighth graders to high-demand careers in various health science fields. Students and faculty from Blinn’s Associate Degree Nursing, Emergency Medical Services, Fire Science, Physical Therapist Assistant, and Radiologic Technology programs demonstrated the basics of each profession, from the equipment they use to the techniques necessary to ensure quality, compassionate patient care. Under the guidance of their mentors, campers participated in a variety of hands-on activities, including blood pressure testing, x-ray imaging, first aid/CPR simulations, fire truck and working ambulance tours, and scenarios involving Blinn’s high-fidelity mannequins. On the final day of the camp, participants worked in teams to conduct an actual medical simulation and perform care with standardized patients as technicians representing each profession.
