Staten Island, NY -A career series aimed at giving high school students insight into jobs in the healthcare professions starts Thursday, January 8 from 4 pm to 5 pm in Staten Island University Hospital’s Regina M. McGinn, MD Education Center.
Students searching for future careers who envision themselves performing surgery with a robot, treating trauma patients in the Emergency Department or scanning the brain will have opportunities to spend time with SIUH surgeons, trauma specialists, neurologists, radiologists, and allied healthcare professionals.
“For young people grappling with their futures, this series is an opportunity to check out careers in healthcare with real-life doctors, nurses, therapists and technicians. The series is constructed as a casual but meaningful interchange – a two-sided conversation between students and health professionals,” according to Anne Marie McDonough, SIUH Senior Director, who worked with hospital faculty, high school administrators and guidance counselors to organize the sessions.
