Air Force Surgeon General visits METC

Lt. Gen. Mark Ediger, Surgeon General of the Air Force, feels the "heart beat" of a "patient" manikin, or SimMan, in the Basic Medical Technician Corpsman Program (BMTCP) Nursing Synthesis Lab during a visit to the Medical Education and Training Campus. The SimMan can be programmed with specific vital signs and symptoms to create realistic and engaging scenario based simulation training to challenge and evaluate BMTCP students' critical thinking and clinical decision-making skills.
