Facility and Technology
K-State’s PA program is housed in the Ice Hall building. Ice Hall provides 9000 square feet of training space, once renovated, and is slated for completion in 2020. The PA unit includes a simulation center with both high fidelity simulators and standardized patients to allow for competency-based training and assessment. This simulation center allows K-State faculty advanced training in the utilization of simulation in medical education, and students’ access to the most up-to-date technology.
The PA program incorporates cutting-edge technology throughout the curriculum including the Anatomage table. Every student will be able to access textbooks, medical references and other helpful resources online through the Hale library. The entire facility is equipped with powerful Wi-Fi to keep students connected.
Human Anatomy, Physiology and Cadaveric Dissection
K-State utilizes the state-of-the-art Anatomage table to provide foundational knowledge in human anatomy and physiology that is correlated to radiology, and includes identification of structures seen in cross sectional anatomy, x-ray, CT or MRI slice data, pathologies or abnormalities, anatomical variations, fractures, and cardiovascular diseases. The Anatomage table allows students to virtually dissect through multiple layers of the human body, both as a cadaver and in radiographic detail.
