Hands on Healthcare

Attention Teachers and Counselors!

 Hands on Health Care

Bellin College, in partnership with local high schools, has created a free, one day experience in our Health Sciences Resource Center (HSRC) called Hands on Healthcare. Students spend the day rotating through stations practicing skills and techniques guided by Bellin College students, faculty and healthcare professionals. This immersive, hands on experience promotes the advantages and benefits of pursuing a high demand career in healthcare using state-of-the-art technology.

A day on campus begins at 9 a.m. and includes:

  • Rotations through seven 30-minute stations exposing students to:
    • Radiology
    • Physical Therapy
    • Sonography
    • Virtual anatomy exploration
    • Operating Room/sterile technique
    • Trauma/Emergency Room simulation
    • Nursing care in a simulated environment
  • Lunch & Learn in a Bellin College classroom (provided by Bellin College)
  • Q & A session with Bellin College students & staff

You can plan your departure for approximately 2 p.m.
