High school career experience events are interactive events for high school students in the LSHCA service area to learn about healthcare careers. 

Students learn about multiple career areas - they have the undivided attention of the professional presenters and have time to ask lots of questions.  They often get a tour of the facility, and are also provided a packet of information to take home. 

Students also receive a completion certificate if they need attendance verification for classroom credit.


What is expected of a student attending a Career Experience Event?

  • Students must register and fill out the information/release form and include all required signatures (parent/guardian signature if under age 18).
