Allied Health students gain real-life experience

Play-doh surgeries

Our Allied Health students have stayed busy in the last couple of months, from first aid training to hands-on experience in packing traumatic wounds! Check out more of what our Allied Health students have been doing below. 


  • 35 students trained in K-12 American Heart Association Heartsaver CPR and AED training for adults, infants, and children, as well as response to a choking victim

  • Students are working through the First Aid portion of their course, including a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) training called “Until Help Arrives,” which includes topics: 

    • Call 9-1-1

    • Stay safe and move the injured away from danger

    • Apply pressure or a tourniquet to stop bleeding

    • Help the injured breathe by allowing them to position themselves, or placing themselves on their side if they are unconscious

    • Provide comfort

    • Moving techniques with mannequins


45 students also participated in a “Stop the Bleed” training that allowed them hands-on experience with tourniquets and packing traumatic wounds. 


This past Thursday, students also performed surgery -- on play-doh specimens! Students tested their knowledge of medical terminology marking important places on their patient’s play-doh bodies, amputated play-doh limbs, and finally, dissected their person.
