Washington
Healthcare
Week
Summer Fun!
... with a little
“healthcare”
thrown in
Washington Healthcare Week is not your typical doctor or
nurse camp; it’s a leadership program that gives a crash
course in the business of healthcare and life after high
school, where teambuilding, networking and life skills
are critical to your future success in any profession. At
Healthcare Week, explore how your abilities can provide
quality healthcare in today’s world.
You’ll be part of a small team (“clinic”) of students from
around the state. Joined by a mentor “Clinic Advisor”
from the healthcare community, your “clinic” will face the
challenges of real-life healthcare scenarios including a
response plan to a health crisis, life science challenges
and hands-on clinical workshops.
You’ll strategize solutions to diseases like diabetes, breast
cancer or obesity and develop a medical product or
service to promote to potential investors.
Throughout the week you’ll also take a test run of college
life, meet new friends, explore careers, enhance your
leadership skills, earn 2 college credit and get the chance
to win a scholarship.
