On Wednesday, 12/11, Ms. Randall and a group of her HBS Biomed students (accompanied by Ms. Lamarque & Mr. Santiago) traveled to St. John's University as part of a new Biomed Bridge Program between our two schools. Having completed a module on the human eye at Loughlin, the students participated in set of college-level extension activities at St. John's.
Led by Dr. Gregory-Fernandez and her colleague, Dr. Beysolow, the students learned how to perform a variety of eye exams, including how to view the inner eye using an opthalmoscope. Two St. John's PA students provided support and shared insight into their experience with the Physician's Assistance Program. Our students also learned how assess for various eye disorders, such as cataracts and macular degeneration.
Lastly, the visit included a tour of advanced medical simulation lab equipment, which will be used for upcoming activities. It was a great start to our new Biomed partnership with St. John's!
