Posted October 8, 2010
Interested in becoming a pharmacist, physician assistant or nurse? A medical lab scientist, mental health counselor or speech-language pathologist?
Jobs in the health sector will be in high demand through 2016, according to the Idaho Department of Labor. Come learn about some of the hottest fields at the fifth annual Idaho State University Health Science Experience Night, Thursday, Oct. 28, 5:30 to 8 p.m., at the Meridian Health Science Center, 1311 E. Central Drive.
The campus is on the north side of I-84 between Locust Grove and Meridian roads.
Students and attendees will have the opportunity to explore nearly two dozen careers in the health professions and sciences, visit with professors and clinical faculty, and enter to win a $500 scholarship.
Attendees will also get “hands-on” experience in human patient simulation—the use of high-tech mannequins to duplicate medical scenarios in the real world.
High school students, college transfer students, parents, teachers and community partners are invited to the free event.
