On Thursday, May 11th Dr. David Farley, a surgeon and educator at Mayo Clinic, and his team will host two 3-hour interactive sessions for high school students called "Saving Lives with Gus". Our goal is first and foremost to teach students how to save a life by using AEDs and CPR, but also give them a glimpse at what things medical students, surgical residents, and practicing physicians do! 

Participate in 6 different stations while being coached and inspired by Mayo physicians, residents, fellows and non-physician educators. These stations include things like:

  • Learning CPR and using an AED
  • Putting a tourniquet on to stop bleeding
  • Suture a simulated wound
  • Practice laparoscopic procedures
  • Tie surgical knots on simulated blood vessels
  • Use an ultrasound on real people!

Attend discover a life-changing career!
