Guam - For the next two weeks 38 high school students will be introduced to careers in medicine ranging from physicians and nurses to those who handle medical billing and coding.
Guam Community College's assistant director for communications and promotions Jayne Flores says the area health education centers grant allows for the free summer program, which will give students a strong foundation in subject areas of math, English, science, and health in order to be successful in the medical field.
"Two weeks. It's free. It's totally grant funded. So they get to learn about all these careers and see some of our labs. We have hospital labs upstairs. The medical labs where they have the beds and our SIM man which is our mannequin that is computer generated that is like a patient can have a heart attack can do things can speak so they'll get to see all of those things and all the cool equipment we have here at GCC," she said.
The classes will run through August 2.
