Healthcare provides many great career opportunities for the future. Union Hospital offers several ways for high school students to learn about a variety of careers.
If you are a high school student and would like an up-close and personal look at careers available in the healthcare field at Union Hospital … then UH TECH is the program for you!
High school students are invited to learn more about healthcare careers! Each event is held on a Saturday morning at Union Hospital. Students arrive at 8:45 a.m. and will wrap up the day's events by noon. Each event will feature a different career opportunity. Students in small groups will rotate through each of the morning's activities.
UH TECH Career Program is announced each winter in all area high schools and local media.

Students focused on a career in Nursing are invited to attend Nursing Career Exploration, offered on one Wednesday morning each month during the school year. A registered nurse from our Community Health and Wellness Dept. guides a small group of students through the hospital. Tour stops include Cardiology, Education, Emergency, Maternity, and Inpatient Rehabilitation.
Because each month's group is limited to 8 students, these events fill quickly. Click HERE for the hospital's on-line Health Events calendar and look at future months to register on-line.
While you may call it "shadowing" or "internship" or "mentoring" … Union Hospital terms it Student Observation. Many UH Departments welcome student observers. Most students come for a few hours up to a full day, but arrangements may be possible for several days of observation.
Note: These programs are not for students in post-secondary or training programs that require clinical training or extended observation in a hospital as part of the curriculum.
