What Is It?

The Health Career Exploration Camp is three-days of activities designed to help students pursue a future health care career. Middle school students who have completed eighth grade through high school seniors are invited to attend. You will participate in workshops, lectures and panel discussions that will showcase health care careers. Opportunities to interact with health care professionals, learn health care skills, and conduct science experiments will be provided. Participants will interact with other students from across the state who are also interested in health care. Social activities are planned, and as a participant, you will get to experience college life first-hand as you spend the three-days living and learning at Dixie State University.
