Camp Med - rescheduled to Aug. 19-21
High school students can apply for Community Hospital’s Camp Med - an exciting, hands-on opportunity to learn about professions in health care. Community Hospital leaders will select up to eight students to attend the camp at the hospital this summer.
Activities will include:
- Using an endoscope and other surgical equipment
- Learning bandaging and casting exercises
- Using imaging equipment to view the heart and other anatomy
- Touring the ambulance and learning lifesaving medical procedures on mannequins
- Participating in life-like scenarios.
Activities do not involve actual patients. Students will be introduced to many different health care opportunities and can interact with lab technicians, respiratory therapists, imaging technologists, physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, doctors, and other health professionals. Sessions run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Applications should be returned to Karen Yost, executive assistant, at the hospital. There is no fee to attend Camp Med. Meals during the program are provided for the students.
