Healthcare Science Pathway
The Healthcare Science pathway completion class visited North Georgia Health System in Gainesville, GA. The students toured various departments and listened to speakers from nursing, radiology, physical therapy, neonatal intensive care, and others.
Pictured here are students who experienced the use of the Divinci robotic arms used in surgery. The students practiced manipulation of small objects with the robotic arms as a surgeon would do inside a patient's body. This type of robotic surgery lessens pain and time required to recover from certain surgical procedures.
