New Visions Health Careers Exploration

High-achieving, college-bound seniors accepted into the year-long, honors-level New Visions Health Careers Exploration Program participate in 21st century, real world, career-related experiences that include clinical rotations, mentoring, job shadowing and internships.

Working alongside doctors, nurses and nurse practitioners, speech and physical therapists, department heads, hospital administrators and other healthcare professionals during clinical and non-clinical rotations, students gain unprecedented knowledge about and insight into the expectations and day-to-day operations of almost all aspects of a healthcare facility.

New Visions students have earned over $2 million in scholarships and are accepted into top tier colleges.

This program is for seniors only and requires a separate application. Prospective students should speak with their guidance counselors.
