According to the local NBC affiliate, the event will include 60 healthcare students who will work in small grounds to manage situations that could happen at a college sporting events. 

The event marks the largest emergency simulation within the Montana University System. 

Throughout the afternoon, students will work together in small groups to manage situations such as athlete and spectator injuries or emergencies that could occur during a college sporting event. In addition, an emergency room scenario will be run by Simulation in Motion, a Montana-based mobile program that will use its expert staff and high-fidelity equipped trucks.

The multi-program collaboration provides students the opportunity to work together to improve teamwork and communication skills while managing mock medical scenarios. Interprofessional educational experiences complement training within individual programs and assist to better prepare UM graduates in their career pathways.

The event is supported by UM Athletics, Health Resources and Services Administration’s rural training grant, Western Montana Area Health Education Center, Montana Geriatric Education Center and UM’s College of Health Interprofessional Education program.
