PERTH AMBOY—Raritan Bay Medical Center is accepting applications now for an intensive four-day career workshop designed for students entering their senior year of high school who are interested in pursuing careers in the healthcare field. The 10th Annual Healthcare Connection program will be held the week of July 7-10, at the hospital’s Old Bridge and Perth Amboy campuses. Application deadline is Thursday, April 2.
The six students chosen will observe a variety of healthcare situations and interact with physicians, nurses and administrative staff in a wide range of departments including the emergency department, nursing units, cardiac catheterization lab, surgical suite, pharmacy and many others. Experts in each field will provide career information and resources and students will engage in hands-on experiences and observations that promise to offer insights into a large number of healthcare careers.
“I learned a tremendous amount about the healthcare system and learned about jobs I never even knew existed. My interest in medicine has only gotten stronger,” says Ryan Richstein, a 2007 Healthcare Connection participant.
Acceptance into the Healthcare Connection program is limited. Transportation between the Old Bridge and Perth Amboy campuses is the responsibility of each participant. Contact Susan Pasternack in the Volunteer Services Department at (732) 324-5006 for information and an application packet.
