Rowan Regional hosts student camp

Rowan Regional Medical Center’s Student Programs will be hosting “Camp Med” ó its annual student medical camp ó July 6-10 on the medical center campus.
As part of a partnership with the Area Health Education Center and Rowan-Salisbury School System, students are recruited through area high schools with the assistance of their guidance counselors, allied health and science teachers. Students will get an in-depth look at the healthcare field by participation in workshops with health professionals, job shadowing opportunities, hands-on activities and field trips.
Jill McNeely, coordinator of student programs, said, “These students will have the opportunity to be our future healthcare leaders continuing the Novant mission of improving the health of our communities one person at a time.Camp Med also gives our medical center and its remarkable employees an opportunity to showcase their exceptional knowledge and skills thus empowering the next generation of healthcare providers.”
Camp staff, medical center employees and healthcare practitioners will offer campers a chance to learn more about science and medical careers and plan for those careers with appropriate courses during their high school years. Students will hear presentations, tour medical facilities, shadow a medical professional, visit Wake Forest University School of Medicine and participate in group activities.
The week will conclude with students receiving a certificate of participation and medical gear. To receive information on Camp Med 2010, contact Jill McNeely at 704-210-5410 or jtmcneely@novanthealth.org.
