Residents and Faculty Provide Hands On Experience at Doctor for a Day Event in Renton

Residents Bailey Ingalls, M.D. (R2)Brian Vasquez, M.D. (R4), and Associate Professor Mia Hagen, M.D. were in Renton this morning providing some hands on experience to students interested in pursuing orthopaedics as part of UW Medicine's Doctor for a Day event.

Our residents and faculty have participated in Doctor for a Day for the past several years and enjoy sharing their experiences with the next generation of health care providers. 

UW Medicine's Doctor for a Day aims to provide outreach to youth of color in the greater Seattle area to inspire and encourage middle school and high school students of color to consider medicine or other healthcare careers. Run almost entirely by UW School of Medicine students, Doctor for a Day events are made up of hands-on stations such as teaching physical exam skills, patient interviewing techniques, and suturing.
