Health Professional Day
As part of our commitment to building a strong foundation for healthy communities, our Health Professional Day program gives high school students an opportunity to see first-hand what health care professionals do each day. Not only does the program enhance what students are learning in their own classrooms, but it also helps them narrow down a practice specialty by participating in hands-on activities.
Health Professional Day is available to any high school in New Jersey. The school enrolls its students for a daylong group experience at one of Summit Medical Group’s facilities. Students spend the day with a variety of health care professionals, gaining insight into specific health care practices and participating in practical skills, such as surgical suturing and injections. Even lunchtime provides an opportunity for learning. Students have the opportunity to ask questions in an open forum session with SMG health care professionals.
