Students explore healthcare career opportunities in robotics

Sixty-three St. Thomas More School students participated in a hands-on healthcare educational demonstration at Lehigh Valley Hospital-Cedar Crest June 3.

The students were able to practice hands-on robotics surgery simulation based on an accuracy and dexterity grading system that had them competing for recognition as proficient in the robotics equipment.

They also viewed a demonstration of robotic coronary surgery and were instructed in first aid techniques to stop the bleeding in a severe wound simulation.
