Students at Bishop Timon – St. Jude High School interested in a career in the healthcare field recently visited Trocaire College. Students attended programming provided by facilitators at Trocaire College that included observation and participation in the procedures of the operating room, laboratories and patient care, as well as healthcare programming offered by the college.
The Healthcare Career Club at the high school offers students an opportunity to explore clinical and non-clinical career opportunities in healthcare. Students attend field trips to healthcare facilities such as Mercy Flight, The American Red Cross, UNYTS, Sister’s Hospital and The Dental Clinic, as well as various colleges in Western New York that provide training for healthcare professions. Membership in the Healthcare Career Club leads to participation in the rotation and internship programs provided by Mercy Hospital in the junior and senior years. This exploration of the healthcare realm is a partnership of Bishop Timon and Mount Mercy Academy and is presented by Catholic Health.
Bishop Timon – St. Jude High School, in partnership with the Catholic Health System, established the Academy of Science & Health Care. The partnership was formed in 2009 to enable students at Timon to learn more about the growing field of healthcare careers and science careers in general. Students who decide to enter the Health Care Academy can expect to work side by side with healthcare and science professionals and gain hands-on experience in a particular field of study. Students will also gain a distinct advantage when applying to colleges and universities.
