On Saturday, April 22 from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. the Takoma Park/ Silver Spring health sciences department will be conducting a Mass Casualty Drill/Simulation.

This is an interdisciplinary training exercise for several of the health science programs. The simulation involves volunteers consisting of faculty, current students (both first and second year students and interested graduates).

Many other faculty, staff and students from the MC community also participate. This will be the third year that our vice president and provost, Dr. Brad Stewart and dean, Mrs. Angie Pickwick have provided their support in both funds and spirit.

The disciplines involved in this event are diagnostic medical sonography, emergency management, nursing, radiologic technology, and surgical technology with equipment and supplies from the physical therapy assistant program. Participants in this unique learning experience have the opportunity to interact with each other in an effort to practice excellent, therapeutic patient communication and quality health care skills in a controlled but chaotic "disaster".

This year the disaster will be a tornado; the past two drills have involved an earthquake and a commuter train derailment, respectively. These drills have provided beneficial feedback from the students and we feel that they have been a good method of informing the community of our dedication to providing quality education and training to our future health care providers!
