Students Invited to Explore Careers at Covenant
Covenant HealthCare is proud to be an "Explorer Post" through the Boy Scouts of America with the mission of exposing students to careers in health care related to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).
The program is open to all students between the ages of 15 and 18 years old. There will be six sessions on Monday nights from 4:30 pm to 6:00 pm roughly every other week from February through April. Each week has a different focus of health care for students to explore. The sessions are meant to be hands-on, interactive and educational.
Parents and students are welcome to sign up for the program and learn more Monday, January 23 between 5:00 pm and 6:00 pm at Covenant Cooper (Entrance A at 700 Cooper, Saginaw, MI in the Executive Doud Conference Room). The cost is just $10 per student thanks to the Covenant HealthCare Foundation. The program is limited to the first 40 students who register.
Sessions start February 6; tentative topics include:
- Emergency Care: LifeNet, MMR, and CPR Training from Pulse3 Foundation
- Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation
- What It Takes to Be a Physician
- CMU College of Medicine and Simulation Lab
- Cancer Care
- Nutrition Services
- Surgical Services
“There are many career opportunities within the field of medicine and health care as a whole,” says Kristin Knoll, Public Relations at Covenant. “We want students to get a feel for what is out there, what they like and what they don’t like. We also try to make the program interactive so they can ask questions and see the environment.”
This program is open to all students; need not be in Boy Scouts to participate. Attendance at the informational night is not required, however, registration and pre-work must be submitted before the program starts February 6.
