High school students from Garrett, Allegany, Washington and surrounding counties in West Virginia and Pennsylvania who are weighing future career options can learn about the many and varied careers available in the healthcare field through ECHO: Exploring Careers in Health Occupations.
ECHO is a week-long residential program for high school stud
ents that allows them to live on campus at Frostburg State University while exploring a wide variety of career options available throughout our region in health professions. Students gain hands-on experiences in team building (think: white water rafting) while undergoing an action-packed week of health professions adventures.
Tour the top medical schools in Maryland and West Virginia. Visit health departments, hospitals, private physician practices, NIH, and the National Library of Medicine. Experience the life of a surgeon via a surgical simulator, and test your limits through a visit to a cadaver lab - all while learning about life in a college dorm as well as how to apply to college and manage your finances.
This year the application includes a brief video uploaded by the student as to their interest in the ECHO program and why they want to pursue a career in healthcare. Applications are being accepted through April 27.
