NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Some New Haven kids got the chance to find out what its like to work in the medical field.

Yale-New Haven Hospital teamed up with the New Haven Police Department to recreate a “day in the life at Yale-New Haven Hospital.”

The kids got to check out emergency medical equipment and even the hospital helicopter in the hopes of lighting their curiosity about the medical field.

“We do a lot about careers, as well as things about health and protecting yourself and injury prevention, so its a good opportunity for a lot of the community and the youth in the community to sort of get exposed to what health care is all about,” said Dr. Andrew Ulrich, Emergency Medicine Yale-New Haven Hospital.

The event was held at Wilbur Cross High School. The kids there were between the ages of 8 and 13.
