Registration is now open for the NC State Veterinary Hospital Tour which will be on Saturday, March 28th. We are going to leave the Moye Annex parking lot at 6:45 am and arrive at the NC State Veterinary Hospital around 8:30 am. Students will be allowed to bring their breakfasts with them and will be able to eat on the bus. We will also make sure we have snacks drinks for the students as well. The tour will begin around 9:00 am and will take an hour and a half to complete. Upon completion of the tour, we will board the bus and head to Crabtree Valley Mall and let the students have their choice of where they want to have lunch. Students will be responsible for paying for their own lunch. We will take about 90 minutes for this and then we will meet up at a pre-established rendezvous point and board the bus and return to Greenville around 3:30 pm. This is going to be a wonderful experience. This trip will be limited to 37 Students.
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 3 through Thursday, August 6 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. 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, June 11th 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.
