The Biomedical Science (BMS) students of the Center for Innovation (CFI) recently visited University of the Cumberlands (UC) to learn about their medical career programs. The UC admissions office provided a campus tour and the students enjoyed lunch in the college cafeteria. “Our students thoroughly enjoyed visiting UC and learning about the Physician Assistant Studies program,” said Mrs. Misty Allen, BMS Instructor.
Mrs. Kristy Reid, Math Instructor at the CFI, spoke about how students are learning to connect mathematical skills to their career pathway. “Practitioners when conducting patient examinations, gathering vital signs and with dosage calculations must have strong mathematical skills,” said Reid.
“We have established a strong and positive institutional partnership with University of the Cumberlands that benefits our students at the CFI,” remarked Dr. James M. Davis. “Students can earn up to 12 college credits for successfully completing the BMS program at the CFI and matriculating to University of the Cumberlands per established agreement criteria,” added Davis.
