MedCamp offers students opportunity to learn about healthcare careers
MedCamp is open to students interested in learning more about healthcare careers, and who meet the application requirements. The program gives students who will be entering the ninth and tenth grade the opportunity to visit local hospitals and healthcare facilities. In addition, students learn about healthcare careers including physical medicine and surgery, nursing, physical therapy, occupational therapy, radiology, pathology, and more. MedCamp runs Monday through Friday in late June. The “home base” for the camp is Penn State Mont Alto, and transportation is provided to the various hospitals and field trip locations throughout the week.
One of the highlights of the camp includes a trip to Penn State Hershey Medical Center. The students are also be given the opportunity to become first-aid certified. This program is an outstanding opportunity for students with an interest in science and careers in healthcare.
In 2013, Penn State Mont Alto, Summit Health, Quincy Village, and Penn State’s Hershey Medical Center teamed up to offer an outstanding educational summer camp.
