Freeman Health Academy

Interested in a career in healthcare?

Freeman Health Academy, the first program of its kind in our community, gives area students the opportunity to learn about healthcare careers from Freeman physicians and staff. The program comprises a variety of camps, outreach activities and educational opportunities. Program options are available for high school students and undergraduate college students.

Summer Camps
​Our summer camps are designed for students who will be between the ages of 16 and 20 on June 1 of the current year. Eligible students will be those in the Freeman service area who will enter 11th or 12th grade in fall of the current year. Selected students will be placed in a 4-day camp held in June or July. 

Program activities include a simulated trauma patient treatment scenario, job shadowing, CPR certification, hospital tour and a behind-the-scenes look at many hospital departments. Students will be selected based on their academic standing, responses to essay questions and desired healthcare career goals. 

Details of upcoming summer dates coming soon.
