AIMS Workshop Participants Get Hands-on Sports Medicine Experience

The AIMS Summer Workshop, offered to high school students through SLU's Practical Anatomy Workshop took place during the last week of June.

The AIMS Summer Workshop began in 1993 as an overview of anatomy and introduction to careers in the health care field. Graduates of this program are already at work in the field of medicine. Physicians and professionals from various medical specialties provide programs in their areas of expertise through 3-D presentations, hands-on laboratory experiences, case studies and group discussions, and patient interaction. All students have an opportunity to observe a live surgery during the AIMS Workshop.

The Athletic Training faculty and the Athletics staff gave the students hands-on Sports Medicine experience at Chaifetz Arena.
