An integral part of the M*A*S*H experience is exposure to the differing areas of medicine and the variety of

physiology are employed in each discipline. The basic science connections to medical diagnosis and treatment
will be reinforced through lecture presentations, labs, and clinical interactions. Additionally, students will be
exposed to the importance of healthy lifestyle habits and will earn their certification in Basic Life Support for the
Healthcare Provider (BLS-CPR).
