Junior Volunteers Get a Taste of the Medical Field
CORPUS CHRISTI (Kiii News) -
Students are taking part in the Corpus Christi Medical Center's Junior Volunteer Program, an eight-week exercise that gives high schoolers a chance to look at what life in the medical field can be like.
It's a field many in the program are interested in pursuing.
"It's a great opportunity to lean exactly how the medical field works," said Christopher Lopez, a sophomore at Calallen High School. "I plan to go into the medical field when I become an adult, and this helps me see how everything works around here."
"I do want to be in the medical field when I grow up, and this just gives you the first-hand experience with doctors and nurses," said Julia Crawford, a junior at Flour Bluff High School. "It allows you to see what one day I'll be able to do."
There are over 30 junior volunteers taking part in the program this summer.
