With bombings and mass shootings on the rise, UofL medical students are being trained in how to deal with these real-life situations. It’s part of a new two-year certificate program in disaster medicine.
The program covers everything from hazardous material leaks to treating disabled hikers in wilderness areas. With the help of Army Captain Robert Greener, UofL students are learning triage skills, treatment plans and the essentials of saving multiple lives in a short amount of time.
According to second-year Medical Student, Jacqueline Sippel, “It’s important to learn how to do these things without necessarily having everything you’d have in a hospital.”
