How would you like to be a Doctor for a Day? Reminds me of those TV ads… “I play a doctor on TV…” Well, you can play doctor for a day, thanks to a course being offered by the University Ottawa. You’ll learn useful skills like how to stitch a minor wound, deliver a (simulated) baby, and resuscitate a victim of a gunshot wound – which is surreal given the increase in the amount of gun violence this city has experienced lately. Don’t worry – you won’t be sued for malpractice!
‘Doc for a Day’ happens at the University of Ottawa’s Skills and Simulation Centre, where doctors and nurses practice these skills on mannequins. Your $175 fee includes a scrub top, which you can then wear to your next party to impress all your friends. Check out this link for more details: https://gallery.mailchimp.com
Did you know there are lots of free and cheap courses being offered at the University of Ottawa and Carleton University that you can sign up for? Which is great if you have some time on your hands and want to enrich your learning experience? Or perhaps you’re retired and want to keep learning? I came across a great article on the website apt613, that outlines many of them. Here’s the link: http://apt613.ca/learning-in-retirement/
