(GENESEE COUNTY, MI) The Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce is partnering with Genesys Regional Medical Center to host a health care career exploration day for high school students from several local schools in the county - Thursday, March 7, from 9 am to 4 pm.

Students will spend a full day at Genesys rotating through four clinical areas and one non-clinical area with a goal to help them in their decision-making process when it comes to a career in the health care field.

They will tour these areas: Laboratory, Nursing, Occupational Therapy and Physical Therapy, Pharmacy, and Performance Excellence - an opportunity to learn about health care from a business perspective.

"Career exploration is an important aspect of life after high school," reports Rhetta Hunyady, vice president of Education and Training for The Genesee Regional Chamber of Commerce. "Through a variety of programs, the Regional Chamber works to expose teens to training and opportunities that will prepare them for a successful future. The students selected to participate in the Genesys Career Day were chosen based on their interest in pursuing a health care career," she adds. " We truly appreciate the opportunity to work with Genesys on this important project.”

In addition to spending one hour in each of the five areas of Genesys, students will talk with a representative from Genesys Human Resources who will share information on job interviews - what to expect and how to interview successfully.

After lunch, students will attend an education fair in the medical center's atrium. Representatives from 15 colleges and universities will provide program and degree information.

Rotation through the last two areas follows lunch and the education fair.

High schools represented at career day include: Bendle, Bentley, Clio, Davison, Fenton, Grand Blanc, Linden, Southwestern Academy and Swartz Creek.
