The Health Sciences Academy is excited to offer the Destination Health Careers program to its rising sophomores, juniors, and seniors this summer. With the support and assistance of Vidant Medical Center and Pitt Community College, students will be involved in hands-on educational experiences that can serve to guide their career decisions.
This exciting opportunity will expose students to a variety of associate degree healthcare careers available to them at Pitt Community College including Respiratory Therapy, Polysomnography (sleep lab), Medical Assisting, Medical Sonography, Radiographic Technology, Emergency Medical Services, and Occupational Therapy Assisting. Participants will engage in two days of hands-on education in high-tech laboratory settings at PCC followed by two days of job shadowing opportunities with experienced healthcare professionals at Vidant Medical Center.
This program will take place Monday, August 5 through Thursday, August 8 from 8:30 am to 4:00 pm. There will be no cost to students, and lunch will be provided daily. This is a great opportunity for students to explore different clinical positions, interact with HSA staff and partners, and to have fun.
Interested students must complete the attached application and required essay and submit them to the Health Sciences Academy office by Thursday, May 30th at 5:00 pm. Vidant Health has several requirements for job shadowing. Please read ALL components of the application packet to ensure that you complete everything that is required. The field trip form must also be complete so that the Academy has emergency contact information. No late applications will be accepted. A committee will review applications and notify selected students by July 1, 2019.
