Clinical Skills Photo Gallery

As part of the clinical sciences and skills value domain, Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine students get early practice in a clinical setting with standardized patients as well as other volunteers from the community.  Check out some pictures from a class session as students practiced checking heart rates, blood pressure and breathing.

Research in the Department of Surgery

    LifeGuard 10

Using several comprehensive databases, the surgery department conducts studies that focus on quality of patient care and improving outcomes after surgical intervention, trauma, and critical care. Surgery faculty members also utilize Carilion's Simulation Laboratory in order to optimize physician training and techniques involving advanced robotics. Other surgeons work with collaborators at the Virginia Tech Carilion Research Institute and Virginia Tech looking at genetic markers associated with tumors and scar tissue. VTCSOM students interested in joining an ongoing research project or starting a new study should contact Ryan Brush for more information.
