Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp is a healthcare career exploration camp for
high school students and is being held at Saint Paul College
from August 6 to 8, 2013. It is dedicated to
promoting health careers among young people in order to meet an ever increasing
demand for healthcare providers in this state.
Students from the Twin Cities and across the state are being given a
rare opportunity to learn directly from healthcare professionals while
participating in hands-on activities in a variety of healthcare fields including
nutrition & wellness, nursing, respiratory care, medical lab technician,
public health, aging, emergency medicine and many more. "The practitioners
are excited to come to Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp to show students the many
career possibilities healthcare offers," said Jane
Foote, executive director of HealthForce Minnesota.
With success from previous Scrubs Camps at Augsburg College and Winona State University, the expansion of the camp to
another metro location gives more students the opportunity to participate. Not
only is Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp offering students the chance to explore
the world of medicine inside the classroom, but field trips will allow for a
diverse summer camp experience. Students will visit Gillette Children’s
Specialty Healthcare and learn about prosthetics and Adaptive Neural Systems, and
explore HealthEast’s Medical Transportation Center and emergency medicine.
Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp, created by HealthForce Minnesota thanks its
foundations and community and healthcare industry supporters for bringing
students this opportunity. In addition to partner support, a number of
organizations donated scholarships to help students attend camp.
The camp has reached its full capacity of 40 students plus an additional
wait list. For more information about Scrubs Camp and HealthForce Minnesota
