Health Careers Pathway Initiative
Learn about health careers including: doctor, nurse, medical researcher and pharmacist
Thanks to a grant from the Community Foundation of Northern Illinois, a variety of opportunities for students to learn about these and other health careers are available through the UIC Health Sciences Campus–Rockford.
Health Professions Student Panels
A panel of students from UIC Health Sciences Campus–Rockford will come to area high schools/events to talk about what it’s like to be a health professions student and what high school students can be doing now to prepare for a career in the health professions.
High school students will participate in hands-on activities and labs at UIC Health Sciences Campus–Rockford. Activities, including a simulation and virtual reality lab, will be facilitated by UICHSC-R faculty and students.
Health Careers Open House
UIC Health Sciences Campus–Rockford will host a Health Careers Open House in the fall of 2020 for high school and college-aged students and their parents to learn about the programs offered on the Rockford campus.
