Students Visit Albany Medical College Campus

Albany Medical CollegeOn January 17th, Mrs. Sesselman’s AP Biology class went on a joint field trip with Bolton to the Albany Medical College Campus.  But this was more than a college visit.  Students became active participants in a simulated medical scenario.  They assessed a “patient” actor who was complaining of chest pains in the park.  They went along as he was taken to the simulated E.R. where students monitored a mechanical mannequin who had a heart attack.  Students were given the opportunity to resuscitate him.  Next, they visited the simulated O.R. where students observed a mechanical mannequin that gives birth.  Last, students visited the anatomical gift lab where students listened to a lecture on the brain.  While most of the day was spent using simulated scenarios, the anatomical gift lab gave the students the opportunity to experience actual brains and spinal cords.  


Thank you to Albany Medical College for allowing our students this amazing and unique opportunity to experience what a day in medical school could look like.
