OC high school students to take part in annual CampMed

Students from four Orange County high schools will take part in CampMed, the annual UC Irvine School of Medicine outreach program that introduces teens from underserved communities to educational and career opportunities in healthcare. The three-day camp experience will be held on the UCI campus May 15-17 and will feature roundtable discussions with various professionals in the field and assorted workshops for suturing techniques, ultrasound treatments, phlebotomy and basic first aid. In addition, CampMed kids will get a chance to participate in rounds at the UCI Irvine Medical Center. CampMed started in 1997 and has reached out to more than 1,000 high school students from Los Angeles and Orange counties.
