Not many high school students can say they are CPR certified, have participated in a simulated surgical removal of a gallbladder, inserted an intubation tube, know how to take blood pressure, and have practiced suturing (stitching) wounds. Thanks to a summer health careers camp, 10 Trigg County students now have those bragging rights!

Trigg County Hospital, in cooperation with the Purchase Area Health Education Center (AHEC), hosted a 5-day health careers camp June 2 – 6 that provided unique hands-on experiences for students interested in pursuing careers in the medical field.

Many of the 13-to-15-year olds began the week expressing interest in physical therapy, cardiology, optometry, orthopedics, and paramedic careers. By week’s end, thanks to the hands-on experiences and information provided by hospital staff, some of the interests had shifted to pulmonary rehabilitation, pharmacy, and anesthesiology.
