A CareFlite helicopter will land on the lawn of UNT Health Science Center's Medical Education and Training Building shortly before noon Wednesday to give students an up-close experience with airborne emergency transport.

Touch-down is scheduled at 11:45 a.m. Students from UNTHSC's five schools are invited to gather for a brief talk by CareFlite Medical Director Robert Simonson, DO (TCOM '82).

He and the flight crew will demonstrate their critical-care equipment, assist students in touring the helicopter's interior and answer questions.

The fly-in was organized by students led by Briana Tully, MS, RN, a second-year TCOM student and president of the students' Emergency Medicine Interest Group.

The hour-long event also furthers the development of interdisciplinary relationships among the various professionals who are essential to quality care in emergency medicine.

See video from last year's event.
