Summer Health Academy

Students who are interested in pursuing a health career and have completed the sixth, seventh or eighth grade are eligible for NMMC's Summer Health Academy. Sessions meet from 8 a.m. until noon the first full week of June. Participation is limited to 25 students who will be selected on the basis of academic achievement, community service and desire to enter a health profession. The deadline is in April to submit an application, transcripts and two Teacher Recommendation Forms.

NMMC's Summer Health Academy introduces students to various careers in health care while reinforcing positive lifestyle choices. Participants spend four hours each day with nurses and other health care professionals who are eager to share their expertise and enthusiasm.

Students tour several nursing units at NMMC, as well as the Wellness Center. Because enrollment is limited, students are able to interact one-on-one with nurses, physicians, radiologic technologists, pharmacists, physical therapists and other health care staff.

The fee for Summer Health Academy is $75, which includes educational materials, a T-shirt, snacks and Friday lunch.
