Students Experiencing Scotland Health Care System

Scotland Health Care System offers a non-paid Job Shadowing experience for area students and/or visitors. Job Shadowing allows the participant to visit an area of the health care system, including the hospital or an outlying clinic area, to experience a health care setting to determine an interest in pursuing a health care career.

In an effort to develop continued interest from our youth to further their education in a health care field, we are proud to offer this service to Scotland County and the surrounding region. From nursing and pharmacy to health education and nuclear medicine, the opportunities for students to experience a "day in the life of a specific health care career" is wide open. If you or someone you know is an 8th grade student or higher, and is interested in taking part in this exceptional program, please contact your school's career counselor for more information.

Questions regarding the specific opportunities offered through the Job Shadow Program at Scotland Health Care System may be directed to the Staff Development Department at (910) 291-7316.
