Medicine is one of the fastest growing and most in-demand careers today. This summer, high school students from across Gibson, Posey, Vanderburgh, or Warrick County have the opportunity to participate in the 27th annual Health Science Institute (HSI), a two-week program sponsored by the Evansville Vanderburgh School Corporation and Deaconess.
HSI allows current high school sophomores or juniors to experience first-hand the wonders of medicine and gives them insight into a variety of medical careers. During the two weeks, students will be housed on Deaconess’ campus, interact with health care professionals and observe a variety of procedures throughout the hospital. They will learn about many areas of medicine including surgery, cardiology, radiology, phlebotomy, obstetrics, gerontology, physical medicine, anesthesia and holistic medicine. Students will also attend field trips to Purdue University to see its pharmacy and veterinary medicine programs, Indiana University School of Medicine, Riley Hospital for Children and Eskenazi Health Complex, which is a burn unit and level1 trauma center.
Students attending HSI will receive one semester of high school credit.
Students interested in applying, must fill out an application by January 13, 2017 at 4 p.m. Only 28 students will be accepted for the program. For more information and to apply, visit www.deaconess.com/hsi
