HS students try out being a doctor or EMT

Midwestern University in Downers Grove, Ill, has a branch here in the Valley of the Sun.

They offer an eight-day Health Careers Institute for HS students.

From 9:00-4:00, students get intense workshops in anatomy, physiology, and introductory skills for a number of health professions.

Covered are emergency medicine, sports medicine, drug abuse, and others.

There is a trip to a hospital and mock rescue exercises.

Emphasis is on what courses you need to take to get your dream health job.

The program is free.

Beats camp if you are considering a health career. If you don't like it--this is the time to find that out.
