JOB SHADOWING DAY AT GOOD SAMARITAN HEALTH CENTER PROVIDES INSIGHT FOR HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
The health care industry offers a wide variety of opportunities that can follow several different career paths.
Students from the Health Occupations Class and others who have indicated a general interest in health care to their career counselor at Merrill Senior High School recently learned more about those opportunities first-hand in a job shadowing day at Good Samaritan Health Center in Merrill. Participants took time to learn some of the basics on protected health information, infection control and ethics along with general career information.
After a tour of the facility, students were given a choice of two areas to receive more in depth information. Those areas included general and specialty medical, radiology, rehabilitation services, laboratory, pharmacy and other miscellaneous areas of hospital operations.
“We hope these students took away some valuable information as they continue to consider their career choices,” said Carol Crevier, coordinator of community health and wellness at Good Samaritan. “Our plan is to continue this program every semester with the hopes that these students will one day choose to become part of our valuable staff at Good Samaritan.”
