Programs for high school and college students
High school students interested in learning more about careers in medicine and nursing should consider the Wake Forest School of Medicine Camp Med program. This program was designed to recruit, educate, and prepare high school students for careers in health professions. Students gain exposure to numerous healthcare specialties over a five-day period. As part of the Camp Med program, students will learn about nurse anesthesia and try their hand at some anesthesia techniques. For more information about Camp Med, click here: Camp Med Brochure.
Volunteer opportunities: We host one teen volunteer at a time, typically during the summer months, as we prepare for the upcoming academic year. Individuals interested in volunteering opportunities may contact the office of volunteer services at (336) 713-3514. We can also provide internship opportunities for college students studying nursing or science.
For college students with aspirations toward a career in healthcare, a summer internship can provide an opportunity for real-world experience in the setting of a healthcare graduate educational program, along with unique observation opportunities in other areas of the hospital and surgery. The internship is unpaid, but the intern will also gain experience performing work functions that can benefit their ultimate career goals, and begin to build that all-important resume for their graduate or medical school application. Information about the intership objectives and requirements is found here.
