EAST ISLIP, NY – Staff members from Southside Hospital and other Northwell Health divisions offered their insights on various healthcare careers last week at East Islip High School’s Medical Career Day.
There were more than a dozen tables representing various healthcare careers from SkyHealth’s helicopter medical aides to Southside Hospital’s security team. In addition, students spent time listening to many guest speakers from Southside Hospital and Northwell Health talking about their career paths and tips to achieve these positions.
“It’s very important for students at this age to get a real look at different kinds of careers to help narrow down their potential future studies,” said Donna Moravick, RN, NP executive director of Southside Hospital, who was on hand at the Medical Career Day. “I wish I had something like this when I was their age. I hope the students learned a lot. The Southside team was delighted to be a part of such a great event.”
This is the fourth year that the Medical Career Academy students have been sponsoring this event in partnership with Southside Hospital and Northwell Health. The Medical Career Academy has 20 of the top students who are interested in becoming doctors and nurses; this Medical Career Day was created for the rest of the students in the school who may not know about the many healthcare career opportunities.
