Advanced Placement (AP) Biology students in the Miller Place School District recently participated in Stony Brook Medical Center’s Medical Simulation Training Day. Dr. Apostolos Tassiopoulos, Chief of Vascular Surgery, Residency and Fellowship Programs, introduced students to advanced medical processes and innovative procedures. In collaboration with members of his medical team and medical students, Dr. Tassiopoulos worked side by side with the students in the simulation lab, where they were able to see the concepts they’d learned in action. The Miller Place High School students were shown how the team of physicians and surgeons train and practice their own assessment skills using the latest equipment in modern surgical medicine.
This program was part of a Miller Place School District initiative to expose students to the latest in cutting edge research and medicine.
