Medical Work Experience for High School Students

Gaining some hospital work experience as a high school student is an excellent way to help make an informed decision about whether a career in one of the clinical professions is for you.

It’s also never too early to begin building a portfolio to support your medical school application further down the line.

We offer special programs exclusively for 16, 17 and 18 year olds that give you the same kind of observational clinical experience as our older students, but with doctors tailoring their mentorship specifically to this age group.

Our high school programs are supervised by our own professional staff 24 hours a day from the moment you arrive until the moment you leave, combining the fun and adventure of a summer camp with serious hospital work experience.

Global Pre-Meds allowed me to explore fields of medicine that I wouldn’t have been exposed to in a typical high-school environment. This program provides its students with the insight needed to direct their career path and understand what working in a hospital environment entails. I was able to build a new base of knowledge through discussing various operations with not only my mentor, but fellow students on the trip.
