A sampling of careers explored may include: physical therapy and sports medicine, nursing, pharmacy, radiology, anesthesiology, cardiopulmonary, orthopedics, medical lab science, mental health counseling, and emergency medical services.
Campers will have the opportunity to participate in unique hands-on activities and demonstrations such as x-ray interpretation, casting, suturing, prostheses, lab analysis, and emergency response to a mock accident. All campers will receive certification in Heartsaver CPR.
Applications are available from the Education Office at Franklin Memorial Hospital by calling 779-2381 or 779-2554. There is a $50 registration fee and spaces are limited.
This program is primarily sponsored by the Franklin Memorial Hospital Area Health Education Center (AHEC), a member of the Maine AHEC Network, which is supported by a grant from the Health Resources and Services Administration.
