Once the simulation began, students were given cards representing their limited resources. They were instructed to assess multiple patients and determine what resources each required - all within five minutes. Afterward, emergency medicine physicians met with the students to review and discuss their choices.
"We like to have hands-on events so that students can be reminded of why they came to medical school. You came here to treat patients, interact and save lives. And a lot of the things we do here are what they do in the emergency department. So the more exposure you get to simulations like these, the better you’re going to be able to respond when it’s real life and actually happening.”
