CoxHealth is opening registration for the next round of their long time program, Medical Explorers.
The program is open to students ages 15 to 20. They shadow health care providers and interact with all kinds of medical staff. Students will run “shadow shifts” in multiple areas including Pediatric Urgent Care, Surgery, Radiology, and nursing units.
Students will also be shown areas like air care and emergency services.
The CoxHealth Medical Explorers program takes place in both Springfield and Branson. The Springfield program has been running since 1968 and is the second-oldest and largest in the United States.
Applications for Springfield are being taken through August 24 and Branson through September 19.
