Trying to decide on a career path or looking to gain volunteer experience? Participating in one of our student programs is a great way to learn about the medical field. Our volunteer opportunities are also great for college applications and job references.
Teen Summer Program
High school students will be introduced to a variety of healthcare professions through hands-on activities, lectures, and job shadowing. Our goal for the program is to allow students an opportunity to gain experience and exposure to various healthcare careers. We hope the program will spark an interest in the health field, motivate students to achieve in high school, and to consider their future aspirations. Along with the sessions, students will have the opportunity to ask a panel of current health and medical student's questions regarding their educational and career paths.
