SC4 Introducing High School Seniors to the Medical Field

There’s a program at SC4 that introduces high school seniors to a career in the medical field.  The program is a collaboration between Port Huron Schools, SC4, and McLaren Port Huron, and it is helping to show students what a medical career may look like in real life. Regional Community Outreach Specialist for McLaren Port Huron, Kelly DiNardo explained that “[when they] heard about the biomedical sciences program it was exciting because it provided an opportunity to enhance the education the students get in the classroom by providing them with some or the hospital experts.”  She said, “It also gives the students hands-on teaching and real life scenarios. The students have the chance to see the hospital environment.” 

Catherine Woolman, Executive Director of Instructional Services for Port Huron Schools said, “it is an opportunity for our students to see some of the state of the art equipment they may work on in the future.  She added, “students have been very interested in the equipment.” Woolman said, “students are learning that there are more jobs in a hospital other than nurse or doctor.” She said, “the program shows students all of the opportunities available for them.”
