Health Career Day is offered to high school youth in order to broaden students' knowledge about the healthcare industry and the variety of healthcare career opportunities available.

Student and Chaperone Registration

Since 2007, over 3,600 high school students have attended the event, including home schooled students, public, private and tribal high schools. Students attend seminars covering a myriad of health careers, from lab technician, informatics and nursing to sports medicine. College and career preparation seminars are also offered. For many students, this is their first exposure to healthcare careers beyond doctors and nurses.
