A Mock Demonstration
Feb 14, 2011
Recently representatives from the United States Army toured the Danville Campus. During the tour, Captain Melinda Alston-Sorsby and Sergeant Timothy Walters observed a mock surgery performed by students under the direction of surgical technology department chair Kimberly Joyce.
During the mock surgery, Captain Sorsby and Sergeant Walter learned that students are evaluated on their skills that include knowledge of the equipment, operating room techniques, sterilization techniques and professionalism.
Judy Humphries, a student in her second year, is pictured in the operating room on the right demonstrating what she learned in class. Her instructor, Kimberly (in scrubs on the left), said she passed with flying colors, even though she was very nervous!
