Health careers exploration program offered, deadline to enroll is March 15

There are many reasons why high school students should consider a career in health; greater job security, flexible work hours, continued education and growth, but most importantly, making a difference in the lives of others.

MedQuest is a health careers exploration program for students in grades 10-12. 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.

Tuition is $175 with scholarships available. Deadline to register is March 15, 2023.
