General Program Overview
WakeMed, UNC Lenoir Health Care, Vidant Health, Mission Health, and the UNC Adams School of Dentistry are pleased to offer a coordinated 2022 Virtual Students@Work Health Care Day on March 2 for middle school students from throughout North Carolina. The event will feature six live 40-minute sessions that will be held from 7:40am – 2:20pm with a break for lunch from 11:30am - 12:30pm.
Each session will expose students to 1-3 types of careers or career settings that can be found within any hospital. Students are welcome to participate in as many sessions as they would like. While we would like for as many students as possible to benefit from the live presentations, a recording of the sessions will be available after March 2 so that registered students can go back and watch them later.
The topics will include the following.
- Vidant Health (Each topic is a separate session.)
- Maynard Children’s Hospital
- EastCare (includes EMT, Paramedics, Communications and Flight Nursing)
- UNC Lenoir Health Care - Lab, Radiology and Outpatient Physical Therapy
- WakeMed – Medical Simulation
- UNC Adams School of Dentistry – Careers in Dentistry
- Mission Health - TBD
Each virtual session is listed as a separate resource within Navigator. To select specific sessions, find each of the health care providers listed above among the Students@Work resources and choose the sessions individually that you would like for your students to have the option of attending. You will be contacted with further instructions after you register.
