MedQuest Health Careers Exploration Program is a rigorously structured, educational, week-long residential program that is held on the University of Vermont (UVM) campus that provides students with the opportunity to explore a variety of careers in health care while gaining comfort in a college environment. Students will receive confidentiality, infection control and CPR training. Through interactive presentations and job shadowing experiences at local hospitals or within the communities, students strengthen their leadership skills, learn about community and continuing education resources, and develop a clearer understanding of career options in health care.
