 The overarching goal of this program is to expose students to a wide variety of opportunities within health care and educate them about how they can best prepare for a career in the health professions.   Program Goals: Students will learn about careers in the health care professions. Students will learn about promoting cultural competence and diversity in health care and among health professionals.  Students will learn about the importance of practical lab experiences and begin to develop laboratory skills.  Students will investigate the role of health care professionals to gain a better understanding of patient-provider relationships through skill-building exercises.   Students will be able to plan their remaining high school curriculum and extracurricular activities to prepare for a career in health care.  This summer we will host an event for students that includes staying overnight in an on-campus residence hall for two nights.
