An important part of medical school could soon be upgraded for the digital age, as a group of Clemson University researchers develop the first simulator of its kind to help teach future vascular surgeons how to suture blood vessels. The SutureCoach would come equipped with cameras and sensors to capture a range of data, including how the surgical tool and needle move and the forces the user exerts.
A diabetes education and support program created by Clemson University and Prisma Health-Upstate is one of the first in the nation to be recognized as a practice-tested diabetes self-management support program by the American Diabetes Association.
