The Dominica State College (DSC) on Wednesday welcomed a new medical simulation lab, a donation from Medical Professionals on a Mission (MPOM).
The lab features life- like robotic patients on which nursing students can conduct practical training.
Dean of the Faculty of Health and Sciences, Lilia Casey, says the simulation lab is important not only to the school, but members of the public who will receive health care in the future from those trained there.
Chairperson of Medical Professionals on a Mission, Shanita Scotland, who spearheaded the project, explained that the lab is meant not only to train DSC Nursing students, but is also equipped to train high school students in CPR and can facilitate the training of seasoned nurses, police officers and fire officers.
President of the Dominica State College (DSC) Dr. Donald Peters says the donation will help the institution in its efforts to increase resilience.
