Career Exploration Summer Programs

Career Exploration Summer Programs

Subject: Explore Careers and College Campuses, Free Summer Programs

Hi All,

For the past 4 years I have helped plan a Purdue experience where we bring high school students to campus to explore healthcare related majors and careers. Together, three colleges have supported the efforts including: Health and Human Sciences, Pharmacy, Veterinary Medicine and the IU School of Medicine.  The two day Purdue experience is part of a larger series of summer programs hosted by AHEC.

If you know of high school students that could benefit from attending one of these career exploring programs, please share this information with them or their parents. There is no cost to attend, as the original program was targeted to students and families where we did not want there to be any financial barriers to keep them from participating. We are opening the events up to any students in the state of Indiana.

Please let me know if you have questions.
