High school students from San Joaquin County spent the day at Kaiser Modesto Medical Center to see what it takes to be a health care provider. Thursday’s visit to the Dale Road hospital was part of Decision Medicine, a program offered by the San Joaquin Medical Society. Twenty-four students are chosen for the two-week program that allows them to explore the world of medicine through mentoring and visits to medical facilities. Participants may shadow a doctor for a day or hear presentations in a simulation lab such as the one at the Kaiser Permanente hospital. Thursday, the students watched a childbirth simulation in the high-tech lab, which is used to train nurses and doctors.
