Our summer Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP) is in full swing -- and our college students are enjoying the experience of learning about health career options by shadowing clinicians. It’s those volunteer clinical professionals who make our program work, and we want to thank them all here:
We're excited to introduce our class of 2021, who recently began our summer Healthcare Immersion Program (HIP). This unique program provides college students with a unique, clinical immersion experience in healthcare as they shadow real healthcare providers (preceptors). As in 2020, we've modified the program a bit to accommodate COVID-19 health and safety protocols. As always, our students will only be observers in low-risk outpatient, orthopedic, elective care. and classroom settings.
This year's students are: Nicole Marquez, Sarah Ortiz, Cameron Thollaug, and Caymus Smith-Pierce. Our new program coordinator is 2020 HIP alum Mahnoor Yousuf.
We're the staff and volunteers at Jackson Orthopedic Foundation, committed to improving the lives of patients with musculoskeletal conditions through education, research and service.
