Explore the exciting array of careers in the health care field
Grades nine through 12
Now more than ever, the importance of health care careers is clear. Talented health care professionals are in demand, and the industry's workforce needs will continue to expand rapidly. High schoolers who participate in this weeklong career exploration academy will learn the basics of nursing, radiology and more, including discussing pathways to becoming a physician.
Each day of the academy, a new professional instructor will take the lead and provide students with insight to their specific field of expertise. Students will have the opportunity to:
- Explore instruments and tools used everyday to diagnose patients.
- Spend a morning virtually with a local physician to experience firsthand what her work is like.
- Take a virtual trip through the world of a radiologic technologist.
- Discover the relationship between science and health care.
By the end of the week, our medical experts will leave students with an understanding of what it's like to work in a profession that helps save lives and keep the public safe.
This career exploration academy will be delivered via Zoom. Registration is $79. This academy will meet from 10 a.m. to noon daily, June 21-25.
