BioMed Cyber Mission

Students Provide Medical Services While Aboard a Mercy Medical Ship

High schoolers encountered many illnesses and diseases while participating  in this live simulated medical mission along the Amazon River in Brazil.

On January 16th, 40 of our Biomedical Health Science students became emergency medical specialists while participating in a live simulation conducted through web/video-conferencing. Students worked together in teams to solve medical cases presented to them by their "Chief Medical Officer" located in the Challenger Learning CenterĀ® on the campus of Wheeling Jesuit University in West Virginia. During the 90-minute mission students were part of a remote emergency trauma unit on a National Institutes of Health mercy ship traveling up the Amazon River. The fictional ship was equipped with high-tech hospital equipment and medical research capabilities.


This intense and immersive learning experience took place on our Middle and Upper School Campus.  The CyberSurgeons TM simulation provided an authentic representation of a real mercy mission that allowed the students to apply science knowledge and skills. The mission curriculum is based on national and state science standards related to human body systems and the disease process. Each team worked together to move the fictional patients through the health care process. They took on the roles of Diagnostic Specialists, Clinical Interventionists, Medical/Surgical Specialists and Case Managers. The responsibilities included:
  • Receiving, reviewing and documenting medical chart
  • Making initial diagnoses, ordering lab and imaging tests
  • Reviewing test results, making differential diagnoses when appropriate
  • Creating a treatment plan
  • Referring for clinical trials when indicated
