MST's Medical Ethics Students Visit The Jacobs Institute on April 12th 2019

Fourteen of MST’s students taking the Medical Ethics course, as part of the Medical Pathway program, engaged in a great experience at the Jacobs Institute this past Friday. Two teams of students were able to successfully work on the vascular endoscopy simulator to extract a blood clot that could leave a potential patient severely disabled.
