Learn, know, do. That’s the recipe for success when it comes to understanding, some say. For some students of Jacksonville High School, they’re experiencing that three-tiered principle as they learn about Naval medicine first-hand through the Naval Hospital Mentor Program.
Ten students participated in the intense five-day outreach program that included panel discussions, hands-on medical applications, workshops, job shadowing and engagement with NH Jacksonville clinicians (physicians, surgeons, nurses, physician assistants, pharmacists and psychologists).
The students received real-world experience in patient care areas-from the operating room and emergency department to pharmacy and physical/occupational therapy.The goal of NH Jacksonville’s S2M2 program is to encourage, nurture, and enhance high school students’ commitment to science and medicine in a welcoming and intellectually stimulating environment.
The S2M2 partnership with Darnell-Cookman complements the school’s focus on equipping high-performing students with the skills and experiences to pursue advanced medical degrees.
