JOPLIN, MO.--- Missouri Southern State University hosted a skills fair today. A dozen interns from Freeman Health System were on campus to learn how to properly care for patients. They learned several techniques like how to create an emergency airway and how to insert a central I.V. line.
"They're starting orientation at Freeman, some of them it's their first day in their residency program. So we're getting them used to doing some of the protocols that Freeman does. Some pre-procedures that they need to know how to do," said Caleb Lewis, MSSU Simulation Coordinator.
The interns are from medical schools in Kansas City, Oklahoma City and Kirksville.
