Students gain experience from Journeys and Destinations


Some students interested in careers in Health and Science attended the fourth annual Journeys and Destinations program hosted by Hays medical center and KU medical center.

Only a maximum of 10 students from our school were permitted to attend the concurrent sessions.

“There were different stations for different medical fields,” junior Kaylee Brin said. “They had things like nursing, radiology, medical information and respiratory therapy.”

Some of the concurrent sessions offered were OB/NICU Nursing, Radiology, Medical Coding, PT/OT, Medical Providers, Pre-Hospital/EMS, Professionalism/Levels of Education and Critical Care/Heart.

The students involved found the program to be intriguing.

“It was very interesting,” Brin said. “They showed us x-rays showing a knife through a child’s skull and one of conjoined twins.”

This educational experience has been a fun and interesting one for students thinking of going into health and science.

“It was pretty cool,” Brin said. “I’ve learned a lot about the medical field.”
