On Tuesday, Oct. 11, Roslyn High School will host its first Medical Career Day for students.
A team of health care professionals from North Shore University Hospital Northwell Health will host a series of sixteen presentations at the high school with a robust list of topics that include: Careers in Clinical Research, The Role of Finance in Healthcare, The Road to Becoming a Nurse, The Road to Becoming an Emergency Room Physician, Careers in Nutrition, Coping with Anxiety in College, Tips for Landing Your First Job, Careers in Healthcare Informatics and many more.
“The career day presentations will discuss topics related to careers in healthcare and personal health and well-being,” said Assistant Superintendent for Secondary Education Michael Goldspiel. “More than 40 tables will be set up in the main gym to allow students time during their physical education and science lab classes to speak with professionals and explore different careers.”
“Medical Career Day will give students the opportunity to learn about the different options available to them after graduation,” said Superintendent Allison Brown. “Many students don’t realize that hospitals and health care providers employ people with a tremendous variety of skill sets that don’t necessarily require a college education. This event will provide them with real-world exposure to medical-related careers, allow them to interact with healthcare professionals and help them make critical decisions about their future.”
