Teens Test Surgical Skills at New CSI

By Amanda Harper
Published September 2006

Forty local high school juniors and seniors recently tried their hands at performing laparoscopic and robotic surgery at UCís Center for Surgical Innovation.

The $9.5 million, state-of-the-art research and teaching facility is dedicated to advancing minimally invasive and robotic surgery techniques that will improve patient care.

The students are part of a medical technology summer camp put on by INTERalliance, a new collaboration between UC and several major local corporations that is designed to give bright young minds a reason to stay in south-west Ohio for their schooling and future careers.
