A Day in the Life

“A Day in the Life” is a series of one-day programs offered to high school seniors interested in health careers.

A Day in the Life – Variety – is a day full of information, hands on activities and education in which an assortment of health professionals (pharmacist, physical therapist, doctor, rad tech, nurse, lab tech, etc.) come to discuss a typical day in their life, required education and training, and other information relating to their career. A tour of specific areas of the hospital is included in this event. This is a great option for the high school senior who has not quite settled on a specific career path.

Dates vary.  Contact Ana Sanchez for dates.
