SCRUBS Camp at Saint Paul College

Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp is a healthcare career exploration camp for high school students and is being held at Saint Paul College from August 6 to 8, 2013. It is dedicated to promoting health careers among young people in order to meet an ever increasing demand for healthcare providers in this state.  Students from the Twin Cities and across the state are being given a rare opportunity to learn directly from healthcare professionals while participating in hands-on activities in a variety of healthcare fields including nutrition & wellness, nursing, respiratory care, medical lab technician, public health, aging, emergency medicine and many more. "The practitioners are excited to come to Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp to show students the many career possibilities healthcare offers," said Jane Foote, executive director of HealthForce Minnesota.

With success from previous Scrubs Camps at Augsburg College and Winona State University, the expansion of the camp to another metro location gives more students the opportunity to participate. Not only is Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp offering students the chance to explore the world of medicine inside the classroom, but field trips will allow for a diverse summer camp experience. Students will visit Gillette Children’s Specialty Healthcare and learn about prosthetics and Adaptive Neural Systems, and explore HealthEast’s Medical Transportation Center and emergency medicine.

Saint Paul College Scrubs Camp, created by HealthForce Minnesota thanks its foundations and community and healthcare industry supporters for bringing students this opportunity. In addition to partner support, a number of organizations donated scholarships to help students attend camp.

The camp has reached its full capacity of 40 students plus an additional wait list. For more information about Scrubs Camp and HealthForce Minnesota please Heather McGannon at 651.403.4118 or heather.mcgannon@saintpaul.edu.
