Emory & Henry College is offering its Healthcare Careers Camp and Summer Scholars Institute & Leadership Program virtually this summer. Summer camp participants will be able to join in the programming from their own homes.
The third annual Healthcare Careers Camp is available for rising high school juniors and seniors who are interested in exploring healthcare careers such as physical therapy, occupational therapy, physician assistant, athletic training, pharmacy, optometry, nursing, medicine or veterinary medicine.
Online sessions will take place each day June 7-11, 2021 and will feature speakers from a wide range of healthcare fields. Additionally, June 14-17, 2021, students will be provided with in-person observation opportunities at several local healthcare facilities daily from 9-11 a.m. Students are provided transportation from the main Emory & Henry College campus to the observation site and back. Students can choose to take one or both camp sessions.
“The camp is a tremendous step toward increasing the number of healthcare providers in our region,” says J.P. Barfield, E&H Exercise Science professor and director of the pre-health program. “The Pre-Health program at Emory & Henry encourages a new generation of healthcare professionals to see what’s entailed in these careers while exploring healthcare.”
