Teaching lab at Kaiser’s Modesto hospital makes learning hands-on
Modesto Bee

It wasn’t quite a royal birth, but the simulated delivery of a newborn caused a lot of excitement for high schoolers at Kaiser Permanente’s Modesto Medical Center. Lucy Vang, 17, of Stockton hopes to become an obstetrician and said time in the simulation lab Thursday was inspiring. “We got to see the baby coming out. It was the first time I’ve seen a birth,” she said. As often happens in the teaching lab, the simulation went south as soon as the newborn arrived, giving students practice they need without any lives on the line.
