2014 Residential Health Career Summer Camp Dates set!

The dates for the 2014 AHEC Summer Health Career Camps are set!  The Summer Enrichment Program, for rising high school juniors will run from Sunday, June 22 - Friday, July 18, 2014.  The Health Researchers Youth Academy, for rising high school seniors, will run from Sunday, July 6 - Friday July 18, 2014.

 These stringent residential camps are designed to help students enrich their knowledge of health and health career options, giving them hands-on experience in a college setting, while focusing on helping them understand the kind of academic preparation needed to successfully pursue these options.

 Depending on the specific camp, other activities may include presentations from faculty, staff and practitioners across the region, lectures and weekly clinical shadowing rotations with practicing health-care professionals. Academic courses in chemistry, biology, mathematics or physiology are also included.

 "These camps offer students the unique experience of health careers in a college setting that will help prepare them for college and beyond." said Chris Johnson, associate AHEC administrator and director of the summer camp programming.

 Both camps are free to those chosen to participate (housing, meals and materials are provided).  Applications are generally due the 2nd week of March prior to the beginning of the camps.
