It was really exciting when one of our BioMed students actually removed a wisdom tooth from a patient during her job shadow with an Oral and Maxillofacial surgeon. Then came the incredible story of our student who actually assisted with the delivery of a baby during her job shadow.  But this may take the cake.....Olivia Pickett, a current BioMed III student wants to become a Life Flight nurse.  Her job shadow has provided her the opportunities to tag along on Life Flight calls TWICE.
