Health Careers Camp – Encouraging Students to Pursue the Path to Health Careers

To better serve Florida’s multicultural patient population, the Central Florida Area Health Education Center inspires youth to explore the opportunities available for a career in health. We recruit young people, especially underrepresented minorities and disadvantaged youth from high schools to attend our health careers camp each summer. We follow these students through their professional training with the goal of having them practice in rural and underserved sites. Student enrichment programs such as the health career camp are designed to generate interest in health careers particularly among disadvantaged and underrepresented youth.
