Casting

Learn how to put on and remove an arm cast in this intensive workshop! A casting technician from Queen's School of Medicine will be providing the materials for pairs to learn how to put casts on one another.

Medical Imaging

Health care providers rely on many tools to arrive at diagnoses and administer care. Medical imaging helps at all points in this process by visualizing disease processes and clues regarding their etiologies, as well as the body’s response to treatment. A medical radiation technologist will illustrate examples from clinical practice, while providing a broad introduction to where medical imaging fits in interprofessional health care.

Laparoscopic

A number of games will be taught by surgical residents to practice techniques such as peg transfer and threading pipe cleaners through loops using laparoscopic boxes. All of these games are played by the surgical residents in their boot camp training during their first year and are sure to be a lot of fun!
