Students get first hand look at health careby WNY Catholic
Students from Buffalo Academy of the Sacred Heart in Eggertsville got a behind-the-scenes look at the medical industry during a recent tour of Kenmore Mercy Hospital.
It was part of Catholic Health's MASH Camp, which stands for Medical Academy of Science and Health.
The program gives students the opportunity to meet with working health professionals, participate in hands-on demonstrations, and tour various departments within the hospital, to see if a future career in health care might be right for them.
On Aug. 7, the students visited various departments in the hospital, including the operating room and laboratory, to see staff in action and participate in interactive activities to learn more about various health care careers.
"We are eager to help young people become familiar with the broad range of job opportunities that health care offers, because there is a tremendous need for more people to choose these challenging and rewarding career fields," said Nancy Preskop, Catholic Health recruiter and MASH camp coordinator.
