Exploring Healthcare Careers

The Academy provides high school students with a structured learning experience in a hospital setting.
Working an average of 18 hours/week, students will participate in both observational and hands-on learning, side-by-side with Hutchinson Regional Healthcare System’s healthcare professionals.
