The idea for the pilot program came from Army Specialist Brian Ruane, a Rutgers graduate. The goal of the two-part session is to give medics a similar experience to what they would encounter in the field.

During the classroom portion of training, the group was shown graphic slides of wounded soldiers, and that was followed by a discussion about how they were treated in the field with minimal supplies.

The team then moved on to the cadaver lab where medics were introduced to their first patients. The four-hour, hands-on training focused on specific medical techniques in addition to an overview of general anatomy. Copyright 2018 BridgeTower Media. All Rights Reserved.
