The College of Health Science will be conducting an Interprofessional Pediatric Simulation (Pedi-Sim) Day on Wednesday, March 9, 2022, from 0900-1230. This is an annual spring event and we would like to ask for your help in continuing this great learning experience for our students. For Pediatric Simulation Day we are seeking faculty and staff members with a child 6 months-14 years of age to visit the College of Health Sciences and allow our Physician Assistant (PA) students and Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) students to conduct a mock physical exam on your child.
On March 9th, parents will arrive at the College of Health Sciences and allow a mock well-child physical exam to be conducted by a PA student who will be assisted by a BSN student in a private exam room. This exam will include examination of the eyes, ears, nose, throat, heart and lung sounds, height, weight, and eye exam, but will NOT include any examination of private areas. In addition, no medications will be administered and no procedures will be performed on your child. Parents will be asked to attend, participate, and supervise their child at all times. Children who are not well or running a fever should not participate.
Please Note: Participation in this mock exercise is voluntary and unpaid. No “diagnosis” will be made, and no treatment will be recommended or provided. This exercise is for College of Health Sciences student practice only and should not be considered as a substitute for a visit with a healthcare provider.
We have 36 time-slots available for child participants. If you have more than one child that can participate, there will need to be an additional family member or volunteer to act as the “parent” for each additional child. You will need to arrive 15 minutes before your selected time slot to be settled in the exam room. Additional information and permission forms will be sent closer to the date of the simulation. You may sign up for multiple time slots as well.
Time slots for the day are as follows:
