The Health Careers Institute provides opportunities for high school students to explore different areas of health care as a discipline. Participants have opportunities to interact with health care professionals including physicians, nurses, and research scientists.
Who Should Participate?
Typical Health Careers Institute participants have expressed interest in working in health care and want to know more about clinical and non-clinical health careers and what to do next to help narrow their focus or pursue their dreams.
What the Health Careers Institute at Dartmouth Offers
The faculty at the Health Careers Institute includes health care professionals from the Dartmouth community, as well as colleagues from other educational and health institutions around the country.
Participants are provided the opportunity to learn about various fields of health care. The areas students will explore range from public health, health policy, and direct health care (medicine, nursing, therapy, etc.) while providing them the ability to discuss with HCID faculty and their peers about what health care may look like in the future … and how they can potentially bring innovation into the current system.
Classroom instruction, a team-based project, and dialogue with faculty and health profession students are all part of the experience.
Time is dedicated to teaching students about the college application, admissions, and student experience.
I met a lot of people that I feel will make good connections in the future. The mentors were so knowledgeable and truly helped.”
