Angela Hale

To encourage students to consider a career in health care, Ms. Hale and Ms. Walukiewicz design a mock hospital and doctor’s office environment in which students experience the physical sense of health professions. In preparation for an existing high school medical studies curriculum, students explore the role of medical secretaries, biomedical technicians, doctors, nurses, dental assistants, and medial records clerks. Students learn how to measure height, weight, temperature, and blood pressure, how to use a microscope and prepare slides, how to keep medical records and handle privacy issues, and how to administer CPR.
