Ervin ES Students Become "Doctors for a Day"

Fifth-grade students from Ervin Elementary School visited the Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center on Friday and became "Doctors for a Day." The event, hosted by the Student National Medical Association, is a fun and interactive way to expose students to the field of medicine. The students diagnosed patients with different medical scenarios, learned how physicians use ultrasound equipment, worked with simulation mannequins, and viewed a emergency simulation to see how health care professionals must work together in a stressful environment.
