Students in the Upstate AHEC Summer Enrichment Program completed Stop the Bleed Training during a tour of the UofSC School of Medicine Greenville in July of 2019. The training, completed on amputee manikins, simulates a real-life scenario. Stop the Bleed is a national awareness campaign that encourages bystanders to become trained, equipped and empowered to help in a bleeding emergency before professionals arrive. The students received the training during a two-part life support series, which included Basic Life Support CPR for Healthcare Professionals.
Upstate AHEC’s Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) is designed to allow students to shadow, volunteer, and explore the healthcare environment while completing a checklist of experiential learning experiences in their own time. Students are assisted with finding placements at local healthcare organizations that will allow them to develop their skills, network with professionals, and solidify their interest in pursuing a career in healthcare.
