2017 MedStart Application is now open – Due March 3rd, 2017

MedStart is a 5-day summer program aimed at developing the next generation of health care providers. Hosted by the Montana AHEC (Areas Health Education Center) and the Montana Hospital Association, MedStart camp immerses students in campus life while providing opportunities to explore a variety of health care careers through simulation activities and job shadows at local facilities. Students also attend college planning sessions to map out their college and career goals. After camp, each regional AHEC office provides support to students that include college resources, financial aid updates, scholarships and connections to further job shadowing within their hometown.

Past activities have included: Dissections; Nursing simulation lab; Dental assisting; Health Information Technology demonstrations; Mock disaster training / EMS; Cadaver lab and X-Ray activities.

Open to current high school sophomores and juniors.
