Think fast! As soon as the doors to your ER swing open, the difference between life and death is how quickly you and your medical team can respond. At EXPLO ER, you are in the middle of the action from day one. Learn to recognize symptoms, diagnose illness, and work with patients.

We believe that, as budding professionals, the best way to understand what it’s like to be a doctor — and to learn to think like a doctor — is to be a doctor. And we know you’re up to the challenge.

"I went to the STRATUS Center at the Brigham and Womens' Hospital for the first time. There, we learned how to intubate with a laryngoscope in a hands-on simulation. And that was just one field trip."

The greatest asset any doctor could have, we believe, is a desire to treat illnesses and heal patients. Which is why, at EXPLO ER, you’ll focus on learning how to treat any case that comes crashing through those emergency room doors. But you’ll also understand why it’s important to treat the patient as a human being, as well as their symptoms.
At EXPLO ER, you’ll learn by doing. Jump right in on the action — inspect x-rays for fractures, learn how to treat an infection, and become CPR and First Aid certified. Explore a working ambulance, a Medflight helicopter, and a state-of-the-art medical simulation center — where you’ll be challenged to use lifesaving skills, introduce IVs, and intubate patients when CPR just isn’t getting the job done. You have to think fast, recognize symptoms, diagnose, and treat patients. Because we believe that, as budding professionals, the best way to understand what it’s like to be a doctor — and to learn to think like a doctor — is to be a doctor.
