Medical Career Pathway Symposium Program

The Medical Career Pathway Program aims to inform high school students about different careers within the healthcare field. The program consists of two portions: the lecture series and the community health project (CHP). During the lecture series, students will hear from people in different fields of the healthcare workforce and during the CHP portion of the program, students work in teams on health-related projects to gain experience and actively engage with the health needs of the community.

The 2023 program will be six weeks during the summer.
