For one week in July, 19 high school students from across Greater Lowell got an inside look at the world of healthcare through Lowell General Hospital’s Careers in Healthcare Experience program.
Through this camp-like experience, students visited several areas of the hospital, including the Emergency Department, Intensive Care Unit, Operating Room, Laboratory, Pharmacy and more, where they had the opportunity to meet and interact with professional physicians, nurses and staff.
Students also participated in many hands-on activities, including training in Stop the Bleed, CPR, AED (automated external defibrillator), and First Aid Certification Training led by the Paramedics and Trauma teams at Lowell General Hospital.
To participate in this competitive program, students must be between the ages of 15 and 18 years, live in the Greater Lowell area, and show an interest in pursuing a career in healthcare.
Thank you to all who helped give these students a week they won’t forget. Lowell General Hospital is proud to support the next generation of healthcare professionals!
