WARM program students train at Gundersen

LA CROSSE (WKBT) — 26 medical students from the Wisconsin Academy of Rural Medicine (WARM), around Wisconsin participated in a core day skills training lab at Gundersen this Friday morning.

Students went through simulation training for medical skills such as placing chest tubes, IVs, lumbar puncture and joint injections.

Other training exercises included ultrasound training and casting.

The program is designed to educate medical students, with the idea of keeping them in Wisconsin.

“In these sites we get to spend more time with the doctors, more one on one time with residents and patients,” said student doctor Ruby Gravrok. “In my opinion we get a better education and a lot more experience.”
