About Camp Med

Camp Med 2022-2023 School Year

Camp Med Events are free, one-day, hands-on health career learning opportunities for middle school students. These events are typically held in local middle schools during the course of students' regularly scheduled day. Students will have the opportunity to experience a wide variety of health careers through hands-on activities and discussions. Students will learn about 5-10 different health careers through a ‘round-robin’ approach. Attendees are divided into small groups of 5-10 students. Each group will spend approximately 10 minutes at various health career stations where they will learn about that career’s job duties, educational requirements, rewards, and challenges. Students will then get to participate in a fun, hands-on activity related to that career such as reading X-rays, filling prescriptions, stabilizing a trauma patient, or rehabilitating a stroke patient. This format allows participants the chance to learn about several health careers in a short period of time.

There are tons of healthcare career opportunities and Camp Med is a great way to see what’s out there.
