Indiana State University students got some hands-on experience on Thursday.
Students working on their doctorate in Athletic Training were put to the test with four real-life emergency scenarios for them to respond to.
Associate Professor Lindsey Eberman told News 10 that these experiences are important for students. It is a way they can put what they’ve learned in the classroom to the test.
“We need to be ready for those things,” Eberman said. “And so simulation helps to create those environments in advance. While they’re learning so that they’re ready that moment that emergency strikes, they’re ready.”
Friday’s simulations included a wrestling meet, a football experience, a tough mudder race and an experience like the Boston Marathon Bombing.
