Doctor for a day

David J. Murray, M.D., professor of anesthesiology and director of that department’s Clinical Simulation Center, demonstrates how to shock a simulated patient in cardiac arrest for national and local legislative staff members who recently visited the Medical Campus to learn why academic medical centers are unique. The staff members were given white coats and allowed to “role play” as doctors for two days. The group also went on rounds, interacted with medical students and learned about bioterrorism safety to better understand the importance of teaching medical centers.
