A Day in the Life at UNMC

Photo blog: Cast away

It sounded like fun. UNMC’s Primary Care Progress and Family Medicine Interest Groups¬†presented “Procedure Night: Casting Workshop” for students Oct. 8 in the Sorrell Center’s Clinical Skills laboratory.

What does that mean? Students learned to administer casts. They received casts themselves. Then they took a saw, and cut them off. And they had to sit there while a fellow student did the same to them.

Nervous? “Only with people watching me,” one said.

Important safety tip: “If the fingers turn white,” the instructor said, “stop.”

(Or red.)

Turned out, it was fun. See for yourself.
