Dr. Kaja Konieczny, a cardiology fellow in Toronto, Canada, previously visited and taught Avalon Students how to properly insert chest tubes in a hands-on workshop inside Avalon’s Anatomy lab. For her returning visit, she lectured about her experience as an Internal Medicine Fellowship/Resident in Toronto and provided critical insight into resident life and Internal Medicine as a whole.
The Emergency Medical Techniques Club has been fortunate enough to have had many guest speakers throughout their founding year, including Dr. Joel Woodley-Cook, an interventional radiologist in Toronto, Canada who taught Avalon students how to properly read MRI, X-Ray, and CT scans while explaining the daily procedures he performs, as well as Dr. Oleg Klipitch, a general practitioner from Toronto, Canada, who provided insight into the world of family medicine and gave club members much advice regarding their pursuit of a medical career.
EMT club would like to formally extend our deepest gratitude to all guest speakers and hope to have many more in upcoming semesters. Call us on toll free number 1-855-282-5668
