The Health Careers Adventure Camp offers participants entering the 7th and 8th grades the opportunity to experience firsthand the challenges, opportunities and rewards of health professions through hands-on learning sessions provided by faculty and practicing clinicians. Campers will be supervised by faculty and students currently enrolled in the health sciences educational programs and will have the opportunity to explore potential healthcare related skill sets through thought provoking interdisciplinary activities.
Students will gain exposure to a variety of professions including, but not limited to exercise science, athletic training, dental hygiene/dentistry, nursing, occupational therapy, pharmacy, physical therapy, physician assistant, social work, speech-language pathology, and surgical tech.
