USF Health CAMLS / USF Band-London
USF Health is preparing for the formal opening of its new “Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation” (CAMLS), a high-tech facility where medical professionals from around the world are expected to come for training and education on the latest high-tech medical procedures and devices. University Beat on WUSF TV takes you inside.
USF’s marching band is preparing for what could be its biggest performance ever, as the "Herd of Thunder" has been invited to play the 2013 New Year’s Day Parade in London, England. We’ll hear from band members and parade officials on this week’s University Beat on WUSF 89.7.
Dr. John Armstrong, Chief Medical Officer for USF Health CAMLS, defines why the new center is a ‘game-changer’ for not just the Tampa Bay area, but medical education in general.
Dr. Deborah Sutherland, Chief Executive Officer for USF Health CAMLS, describes how partnerships with medical technology companies will help fund CAMLS’ ongoing operations.
Dr. Laura Haubner, Medical Director for CAMLS Virtual Patient Care Center, talks about some of the simulators used in the Center.
Robert Bone, Executive Director of the London New Year’s Day Parade and Festival, speaks to USF Herd of Thunder members and USF officials at the formal invitation ceremony about the scale of the Parade, including some of the historic sites marchers pass.
Dr. Matthew McCutchen, Director of the USF Herd of Thunder, talks about preparations for the trip, how it fits into USF’s “global reach” mission, and what will happen if the USF Football team makes a bowl game between December 27 and January 3.
USF Herd of Thunder members Logan Sorey (baritone) and Christy Hobby (color guard) talk about the work that will go into preparing for the Parade.
