HAWC: The Medical Professionals of Tomorrow

Written by Ed Braxton on in LVMC News

For the spring semester, this group of HAWC (Health and Wellness Careers Academy) students from Lompoc High School visited the acute hospital every Friday during the spring for job shadowing in different departments. The students were able to learn about the education required for specific jobs, and to understand the roles and duties of each department, giving them a hands-on view of the medical profession. The students presented LVMC staff with a framed poster of thanks, and individual testimonials to those who helped with the job shadow program.
