It’s a NEOMED tradition: Each year, new graduates present a class gift that will leave a legacy and give back to the University. This year, students graduating from the College of Medicine and the College of Pharmacy decided to combine their donations and purchase simulation equipment for the Wasson Center.
In total, these generous students are donating $3,000 to upgrade three ventrilscopes—modified stethoscopes used to conduct mock examinations. The devices produce digitally recorded sounds simulating what a doctor would hear when examining a patient with a heart murmur or tachycardia, among many other conditions. The ventrilscopes will go a long way towards enhancing the education of current and future NEOMED students.
