By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH, KY - Baptist heath will soon be offering a pre-med academy, with a goal to assist college students in their medical career development and to foster relationships with future physicians.
Fifteen students from the Jackson Purchase area will be selected for the program. Applicants need at least one semester of college credit. More information, including admission criteria, is available at BaptistHealthPaducah.com/Careers.
"This program will give students an inside look at medical careers to help them determine what they want to do and why," said Bradley Housman, MD, chief medical officer. "Shadowing a variety of medical professionals will give them a unique perspective as they go through hospital departments, ranging from the emergency department to surgery." Participation will help students network for future job opportunities and provide valuable experience for applications to graduate programs, Housman added.
