High school students can register now for USDs Healthcare Careers Camp
USD’s Healthcare Careers Summer Camp is open to students from South Dakota, northeast Nebraska, northwest Iowa and southwest Minnesota. Students entering 10th through the 12th grades this fall are eligible to apply. All applications require a counselor nomination, a parent or guardian signature, an official school transcript and a personal statement. The application deadline is Wednesday, April 1. Tuition is $100 per student, which includes meals, lodging, and all educational and recreational activities.
Students selected will participate in information-gathering activities and receive hands-on learning, including a gross anatomy lab tour, certification in cardio pulmonary resuscitation (CPR), field trips to area medical facilities, and group activities and discussions. Additionally, camp participants will interact with health care professionals, faculty and others relative to the pursuit of health care careers. Staff advisers from the Sanford School of Medicine and the USD School of Health Sciences will also be available during the camp to discuss everything from education requirements to future employment opportunities and salaries.
“It’s hard to believe that this summer will be the ninth year we’ve been able to hold the camp at USD. Over the past several years the application process has become increasingly more competitive. Based on the quality of the applications we receive each year, South Dakota’s future health care workforce will be in good hands,” said Kathy VanKley, INMED Program Coordinator, Sanford School of Medicine.
