This is such a great opportunity for a student who may be interested in getting into the medical field, but doesn't want/can't pay for years and years of medical school.
We've all heard about the healthcare worker shortage and Tallahassee Memorial HealthCare is offering up a unique solution.
They are offering a summer internship for high school students where they get to spend two days a week learning the 'behind the scenes' of what it takes to be a surgical technician.
Susan Branham is the Nurse Manager of operations and educator at TMH. "We noticed that here in the community all through Tallahassee, there's a shortage of surgical techs. So we decided to create a program that would help fill that gap," Branham said.
When they graduate, students will have 126 volunteer hours, a job offer and the the opportunity for tuition reimbursement if they choose to further their education if they are hired.
"We will hire them as a sterile processing tech or a surgical support tech," Barnham said. "Those are entry-level positions for us."
