OPPORTUNITIES

PARTNER'S PROGRAM AT LEXINGTON MEDICAL CENTER

The Lexington Medical Center Partners Program is designed to introduce the healthcare industry to enthusiastic, bright high school students who have a genuine interest in a health care industry career. Participants complete rotations through a variety of clinical and non-clinical areas, learning about careers in healthcare including professional and allied health careers such as Radiologic Technology, Physical Therapy, Surgical Technology, Nursing, Information Technology and various administration roles.

Beginning this year, only current JUNIOR level (rising senior) students are eligible to apply to the Partners Program. This is a change that will give more opportunities to those students completing their last year of high school coursework and are preparing for a transition to college and career in a health care related field.

Session A- June 13-July 1, 2022
