Students explore a career in health care on Take Our Kids To Work Day

November 5, 2014

Today, 200 grade nine students will experience a career in health care as they visit London Health Sciences Centre to participate in Take Our Kids to Work Day.

Take Our Kids to Work Day gives students a chance to explore future job prospects in health care, while giving LHSC staff the opportunity to showcase what they do and how it impacts the community. As an acute care teaching hospital, Take Our Kids to Work Day is an extension of LHSC's commitment to life-long learning and education.

Students will have an opportunity to shadow their parent or host to learn about a unique role and working in a professional environment. Then, they will take part in a presentation where they will learn about infection prevention and control practices, followed by a panel discussion with health care workers in various roles. Students will also be taken on a tour of either Victoria Hospital or University Hospital.
