CASH-ing on our experience
BIDMC recently hosted a medical field trip for students from the Community Academy of Science and Health (CASH), a science and health themed public high school in Hyde Park.
Alden Landry, MD, MPH, and Jessica Klausmeier, MD, MPH both of the Emergency Department put together a program that took the students on a tour of BIDMC's Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, the Trauma Intensive Care Unit, the Emergency Department and Internal Medicine.
The CASH school offers internship opportunities and support, like this hospital field trip, for students interested in the medical field. "I'm thinking about emergency medicine," said CASH Senior Asma Abdul. "I had a lot on my mind when I came today and I actually had personal one-on-ones with a couple of doctors. It helped me feel more confident."
