The ATSU-Truman Healthcare Academy offers an integrated curriculum that exposes students to the methods and skills of a variety of health professions, including, but not limited to: osteopathic medicine, nursing, and allied health careers such as exercise science, audiology/speech pathology, athletic training, physical and occupational therapy, and nutrition.
All students will learn about health professions through hands-on activities and stimulating discussions. In many sessions students will engage in simulations where they attempt to address real problems confronted by health care professionals. Students might be asked to address a major epidemic, develop a health communication campaign, organize an emergency room triage process, or respond to a bioterrorist attack. Students will get to use actual health care and medical facilities, including the ATSU cadaver lab, where students will have direct contact with real human systems and handle actual human organs; human-patient simulators, where medical students learn how to respond to actual patient crises; and biological, clinical, and exercise laboratories on both the Truman and ATSU campuses.
