You can explore the wide-array of opportunities available in this field at SDSU’s Health Professions Career Camp.

Summer 2024 Camp

In order to provide participants the most personalized experience, enrollment in the camp is limited and space will be filled on a first come, first served basis. As part of the camp, participants will be visiting healthcare facilities and will be required to adhere to any safety protocols that facilities have in place at the time of our visit.
