Two seniors, Leah Anders and Sydney Thomas, recently traveled to Cincinnati Children’s Hospital for a science symposium. They toured labs, did some hands-on activities, and met people from careers they are pursuing. Both are students in Mrs. Valerie Smith’s Medical Interventions class in the Biomed program at the high school.
From the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital website:
” Students gain insight into educational requirements, career paths and salary potential from biomedical professionals who work in many disciplines. They meet physicians, dentists, nurses, radiology technologists, pharmacists, occupational and physical therapists, respiratory therapists, speech pathologists, audiologists, psychologists, genetic counselors, cytogeneticists and biomedical researchers. They also get to go behind the scenes into the pharmacy, radiology department, clinical and research laboratories and operating rooms for a firsthand look at the work environment. And at lunchtime, they have the chance for informal conversations with specialists in the field they’re interested in.”
