Three area high school juniors were part of the HCCH Health Careers Boot Camp held last week and were introduced to careers in health careers at the Harrison County Community Hospital.

The event included job shadowing in clinical departments.

Students learned about X-rays, CT scans, and MRIs and observed physical, occupational, speech, and respiratory therapists working with their patients.

Students also observed blood typing in the laboratory, using a microscope to examine specimens, and conducting tests using the hospital’s lab equipment.

Hospital employees working in social work, health care billing and finance, and pharmacy also discussed their jobs with those participating.

The Boot Camp was funded by the Howard and Leah Trullinger Endowed Scholarship Fund, administered by the HCCH Foundation. The three high school juniors were applicants selected for the week long program.
