Hundreds of high school students attend Careers in Health Day


More than 200 students came out to the Lincoln Campus to explore many different health care programs at SCC. Prospective students were able to take part in multiple hands-on activities. Everything from bone gluing to wound care to medical injections was available on site.

“This was an opportunity to experience future health care careers in a fun, hands-on environment,” said Jill Sand, SCC’s dean of Health Sciences. “Students worked alongside amazing health care professionals who are passionate about their profession and want to share it.”

Programs represented included Nursing, Physical Therapist Assistant, Surgical Technology, Dental Assisting, and more. There was a mobile medical lab, emergency service, medical helicopter and sports injury therapy rotations. Students were also able to explore advanced professions such as dietician, occupational therapist and physician assistant.

“It was a fun day with multiple learning experiences,” Sand said. “We want to walk with the students as they explore the exciting careers in health care.”
