Lansing high school students in Future DOcs program complete their ER rotation

Future DOcs, a new medical career development program offered through a partnership between Sparrow and the Michigan State University College of Osteopathic Medicine, held its first training session at Sparrow on Saturday, June 8.

Sixteen students from Eastern, Sexton, and Everett spent the morning in an Emergency Medicine Rotation, covering Pediatric emergency medicine, ultrasound procedures and anatomy, and taking a hands-on approach to first responder care.

The program will continue on Saturday mornings for seven weeks through July, alternating locations between Sparrow and the East Lansing campus. They will learn what it takes to get to medical school, what the life of a medical school student is like, and what kinds of careers are open to doctors of osteopathic medicine.

Future sessions will include:

  • Leadership and Interpersonal Skills development Workshop (True Colors): MSUCOM East Lansing
  • Forensic Science Workshops: Sparrow Hospital
  • Stroke Awareness and Prevention Workshops: MSUCOM East Lansing
  • Cardiology and Radiology Rotations: Sparrow Hospital
  • Diabetes Awareness and Prevention Workshops: MSUCOM East Lansing
