Event Description

Medical Explorers, a longtime tradition at CoxHealth, offers young adults the chance to see if a career in the health care industry is right for them – and registration for the next chance to participate is going on now. Applications will be accepted for the upcoming session until Jan. 18.

The program is open to students ages 15 to 20, and gives them the opportunity to shadow and interact with providers across the field. Students shadow shifts in various areas of Cox South, including Pediatric Urgent Care, Surgery, Radiology and nursing units. Monthly meetings also introduce students to a variety of health topics, such as air care, emergency services and nursing.

CoxHealth’s Medical Explorers post – the second oldest in the United States – began in 1968, and has grown to be the largest in the country.
