This summer, 102 area high school students who are interested in medical careers had the opportunity to attend “MeD Camp,” thanks, in part, to the UCF College of Medicine.

Florida Hospital, the college and the Sanford-Burnham Research Institute joined forces to offer the camp where aspiring young medical professionals could meet, network and learn from experts in medical education, patient care and research.

Students interacted with surgeons, medical educators, pediatricians, nurses, research scientists and other health-care professionals, who answered questions about the challenges, rewards and educational requirements for particular career paths.

“We had a great turnout,” said Laura Grubbs, manager of community partnerships for Florida Hospital. “And we want to thank the UCF College of Medicine for its help in reaching out to our community.”
