Healthcare Career Fair Draws Area High School Students

On March 10th, 100 area high school students experienced the Rochester General Hospital (RGH) Healthcare Career Fair, a collaboration of Monroe #1 BOCES College and Career Ready Partnership and the Eastern Monroe Career Center’s New Vision Medical Careers program.

Deborah Stamps, Senior Vice President of the Quality and Innovation Institute at RGH, welcomed the students and shared the story of her path into the medical field, the rewarding aspects of her career, and the future needs of the healthcare profession.

After the welcome, the New Vision Medical Careers students led small groups on a combination of tours of several hospital departments (Lipson Cancer Center, Central Stores, Pluta Dental Center, Medical Intensive Care Unit (MICU), Orthopaedics, Pediatrics, Pharmacy, Phlebotomy and Radiology). RGH staff members were available in each department to answer students’ questions and discuss details about their work.

As the first student group was on tour, the second visited stations where medical professionals provided information and hands-on activities. The students asked questions, received background information, and networked with professionals from a variety of medical specialties.

The Healthcare Career Fair included students from several regional school districts, including East Irondequoit, Gates-Chili, Greece, Pittsford, Wheatland-Chili, and West Irondequoit CSD.
