The Greenwood School District is offering a new program designed to give students experience in the career field of EMT or sports medicine.
According to Assistant Superintendent Suzanne Wilson, the experience will help students decide on a career path before they have to declare a college major. “This will either inspire students further and give them valuable experience for future careers in the medical field, or give students a chance to find out medical fields are not meant for them,” stated Wilson.
Staff members for the program include:
Program Director – Dr. Mark Travis
Instructors: Lauren Sexton – Sports Medicine
Josh Edwards – EMT
Brennon McMahan – EMT
“We are excited to have an amazing staff for the Envision program,” added Wilson. “They are an energetic and experienced group of professionals with a plethora of skills and the ability to relate to our students.”
The program has reached full capacity for classes this fall. The new facility, located in H.B. Stewart Bulldog Arena, features a state of the art anatomage table for dissection and manipulation of cadavers, four therapeutic modality devices, and two examination rooms. The medical training center also includes a full size ambulance simulator, built by Beshears Construction Company.
