Health Professions Enrichment Program for 9th & 10th graders
Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine, in partnership with Virginia Tech’s College Access Collaborative is excited to launch the Health Professions Enrichment Program, an annual educational outreach program for 40 high-potential 9th & 10th grade students who are passionate about science and health-related careers.
We will host the program in two locations to accomodate students in the Southwest and Southside regions. The Southwest program will take place at the Virginia Tech Carilion School of Medicine campus in Roanoke and the Southside program will take place at SOVAH Health in Danville.
The program provides the students a realistic look at what life is like as a pre-med student, medical student, and a medical professional. The program will consist of two Saturday sessions at either the Virginia Tech’s Health Sciences and Technology Campus in Roanoke or SOVAH Health in Danville that provides hand-on, minds-on opportunities to learn about medical careers, problem-based learning, teamwork, conflict-resolution, and utilizing your strengths.
Students are required to remain fully engaged with the program during both sessions.
