Hands-on learning for CMA students

On October 29, Durham Tech hosted 37 9th graders from City of Medicine Academy (CMA). According to Melissa Ockert, dean of Health Technologies, “CMA students visit Durham Tech twice a year for hands-on learning experiences where they tour our labs, learn more about the programs we offer, and have the opportunity to practice skills with the faculty. We try to align the skills that they are performing with what they are learning in class. The students love to work in the simulation lab (pictured here) so we make sure all students have an opportunity to rotate through it. This week, students also worked with faculty from our ADN, PN, Opticianry, HIT, RT, and Pharm Tech programs.”
