Develop practical medical skills with this fascinating kit by The Apprentice Doctor!
An excellent learning resource for future doctors, this "How to Examine Patients Course and Kit" provides middle and high school students with a thorough introduction to medical science and examination principles.
Whether you are a teenager or adult interested in medical school and a medical career, or a parent that simply wants to better understand how to examine a sick child, you will enjoy and benefit greatly from this course.
Much more than a quick "how-to" experiment kit for kids, this is a complete course covering the basics of medical principles and patient examination. The heart of the course is an eLearning flash drive that takes you step-by-step through the content. Learn by reading, watching, listening, and actually doing it yourself through videos, special audio files, and practicing the medical techniques using the hands-on instruments included with the course. You can review and practice any section of the course repeatedly until you master both the concepts and practical techniques.
This thorough and complete introductory course develops knowledge of medicine and the human body while teaching practical applications of how to examine patients.
The following major sections comprise The Apprentice Doctor course:
- Introduction: sterility and asepsis, medical history
- Principles of Examination: sound/hearing, light/vision, medical instruments, patient examination
- The Human Body Systems: all 11 systems including skin/covering, skeletal, muscular, nervous, endocrine, cardiovascular, lymphatic, respiratory, digestive, urinary and reproductive
- Diseases: diagnosis of diseases, water and electrolyte balance, trauma, specific diseases
Medical Chapters: six flash drive chapters (compatible with Windows and Mac) and 14 online chapters on cardiology, airways, safety aspects, neurosurgery, gastroenterology, and more
- Careers in medicine and further opportunities
If your child dreams of becoming a doctor or having another medical career, this course teaches the theory and helps her practice and master the basic techniques of medical examination, while preparing her for a fulfilling lifelong career in medicine. The eLearning flash drive alone is worth more than twice the price of the complete course; add in the included tools, and this Apprentice Doctor How to Examine Patients Course and Kit is an exceptional value. You provide two AAA batteries.
A sphygmomanometer is optional and not included in this kit, but we highly recommend that you purchase one to learn to measure blood pressure.
The Apprentice Doctor How to Examine Patients Course and Kit includes more than 50 projects to apply what you have learned. Sometimes, these involve listening to audio files of the digestive systems, heart, lungs, and more to discern "normal" and "abnormal" sounds. Other times, these projects involve using the various instruments to develop and hone hands-on examination techniques.
