Students Learn On-Site at St. Peter’s Hospital and Ellis Medicine
The New Visions Health Careers program is a one-year, honors-level course that is designed for high school seniors interested in a career in medicine. This is a competitive, rigorous, immersion-based program.
Students in this program obtain up to 130 observation hours in over 30 different clinical rotations. Clinical rotations take place at their respective hospitals and several off-site clinics throughout the region. Students learn about different health related careers and career opportunities through clinical rotations, guest speakers, medical grand rounds and field trips. As a result, students form a clearer vision of their college and career goals by acquiring first-hand knowledge of the day-to-day demands and rewards of various health care professions.
The course provides an integrated curriculum that covers the subject areas of bioethics, anatomy and physiology, public health policy, economics of healthcare and explores the role of government in health care.
