High school students are getting some hands on experience as they look for a future career.
Students from schools around KOTA Territory were at Western Dakota Tech for the SCRUBS camp.
Demonstrations on surgical technology, paramedic training, nursing and phlebotomy were just some of the topics covered.
The camp is designed to give students an opportunity to experience a number of jobs within the healthcare field.
Rapid City Christian High School Junior Olivia Goodrich says,"It's really cool to learn about different careers so I can learn more about those and what they entail and see if I want to do one of those instead of nursing."
Western Dakota Tech Spokesman Steve Buchholz emphasized why the camp offers such great opportunity for students to explore the various facets of the medical field, "We just think this is a great opportunity for high school students to see what medical careers are all about. Medical careers are growing in a big way across the country and South Dakota and they are a great option for anyone looking for a meaningful, important and growing career."
This is the 9th year Western Dakota Tech has hosted the camp and say they have a number of students come to the school after participating in the camp.
