ACADEMICS: CAT Field Study to Palmetto Health Orthopedics

The freshmen CAT computer science students were able to go on a field study to Palmetto Health Orthopedics and see first hand how information technology is being integrated into the medical field and the many possible careers associated with IT in medicine. They were able to hold and focus an arthroscope as well as use the camera and video, which are all used during an arthroscopic surgery. They also visited the data center for Palmetto Health Orthopedic. However, most of their data is stored on the cloud. It was impressed upon them how IT is able to make the doctors more efficient and give the patients a more pleasant experience. It was another great adventure for the Carolina Alliance for Technology (CAT) students to gain exposure to the career pathways associated with computer science.
