Our future health care workers

SCRUBS Camp 2009, Charleston, SC

The kids appear to be having a good time but I am wiped out. Twenty four teenagers can drive me to my couch in the evening. Today was Physical Therapy, Imaging/Radiology, EMS and Surgical Careers. They let them intubate the mannequin, ride in the ambulance and use the bovie cauterizing machine in the OR.

No worries. Those are beef kidneys the students are suturing.


  1. Nothing like hands-on learning!

  2. I'm so glad you mentioned they were beef kidneys...

    I'd be on the couch, too!

  3. Jacob - I want to make sure it doesn't feel like school.

    Pixel - Thought I'd best mention that!

  4. No worries - unless you happen to be a cow!

    Interesting that they are wearing masks when working with the cow kidneys but not gloves. I think I would do the opposite......

  6. They didn't have to wear the masks, they just wanted to.

    I'd wear a mask that way if some random person tries to sue me my identity is covered. Hey you, hand me a scalpel would ya.

  8. Exactly. That's why I made them wear their name tags on the outside.


Leave me a comment. They make me strong.
