I suppose one might say that the moral of this story is “Be careful with what you ask for, because you just might get it.” Six years ago, Dr. James “Bo” Adams, CBC alumnus, mentioned to me, “If there’s anything I can do to help current CBU students, please let me know.” This offer ultimately led to some brain-storming with Andrea Bergen-Rourke, Education Coordinator at Delta Medical Center, resulting in the creation of a course entitled “Medical Shadowing”. The class meets once per week for a 3-hour block of time, during which upperclassmen rotate through the departments at Delta Medical Center, and observe the activities of the healthcare providers who work there.
These departments include:
Introduction to the hospital, Hospital procedures, HIPAA directives
In order to participate in this class, students must be in their junior or senior year, and are required to provide a urine drug screen, criminal background check, TB Skin test, and a current immunization record.
