La Crosse Health Careers Camp 2018

Our regional health career camps are designed to for high school students, ages 16 and older, residing in the SRAHEC region, and who are interested in pursuing a health career. The northern region camp in La Crosse was held June 17-20, and included exploration of facilities like: Mayo Clinic Health Systems, Vernon Memorial Healthcare in Viroqua and Gundersen Healthcare System.

Students interacted and job shadowed with a variety of health care professionals, including: nursing, physician and physician assistant, occupational, physical and respiratory therapy, radiography, and paramedic and emergency services, and more.

The camp was an opportunity for students to visit college campuses, with like-minded peers as they prepare for post-secondary education. Campus visits included: Viterbo University, the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse and Western Technical College with hands on simulations in health career educational programs, student-led tours and admissions presentations.
