Health Professions Career Camp

Dreaming of a career in health care?

If you’re interested in a career that will give you the chance to help others, consider working in a health-related field! You can explore the wide-array of opportunities available in this field at SDSU’s Health Professions Career Camp. Students will be able to interact with health care professionals and participate in a variety of activities, such as:

  • Demonstrations and information provided for many areas including nursing, pharmacy, pre-professional programs, human nutrition, exercise science, biology, microbiology, medical laboratory science, and more.
  • Virtual visits to local health care facilities and specialty clinics which may include a virtual tour of their facilities.
  • Question and answer panel sessions with a range of healthcare professionals.

    The camp is for students entering their Senior year of high school the fall after attending the camp. Financial assistance is available for those with demonstrated need.  With enhanced diversity as part of SDSU’s land-grant mission, students from under-represented populations are encouraged to apply.

    Sponsored by Avera McKennan Hospital and University Health Center, Health Professions Career Camp is supported and organized by the College of Nursing, the College of Pharmacy and Allied Health Professions and the Department of Biology/Microbiology.
