About 200 students from area high schools interested in careers in health care attended Bothwell Regional Health Center’s annual Freshman Career Day at State Fair Community College on Wednesday, April 4.
Bothwell staff from all areas of health care talked with students about job opportunities in the health-care field.
“We want to help students explore careers in the medical field to spark their interest in the dynamic and ever-changing arena of health care,” said Deb Clemmer, Bothwell’s vice president of Human Resources. “We also hope that they will someday return to our community with their expertise and provide exceptional care for patients.”
Students learned what classes they need to take in high school, what colleges to consider, how much education they need, what the job will be like, how much demand there is for a particular profession and average salaries.
