It provides high school students an opportunity to explore a wide variety of careers in health care, from the well-known to the unexpected. Through workshops and job shadows, students will have an opportunity to see a variety of careers in the health care workforce. Students will also learn some basic medical skills, medical terminology and be introduced to a variety of career and education tracks.

Southern Vermont Area Health Education Center (AHEC) is offering two sessions of the popular MedQuest program this summer at Rutland Regional Medical Center, Springfield Hospital, and North Star Health. This exciting hands-on career exploration day camp will take place July 24-26, 2023, at Springfield Hospital & North Star Health, and August 2-4, 2023, at Rutland Regional Medical Center.
