Emerging Health Professionals Program for Schuylkill County Residents

Offered by a partnership of Lehigh Valley Hospital–Schuylkill, Schuylkill Technology Center and Penn State Schuylkill, this dual-enrollment program combines skills-based, interactive and university-level classroom learning with observation in a health care setting.

The program is designed for high school seniors interested in the health care field and allows students the opportunity to explore careers in health care firsthand. In addition, the program is designed to prepare students for post-secondary education by offering college-level science courses. 

Emerging health professional students are exposed to a variety of shadowing, simulation and other educational opportunities at Lehigh Valley Health Network locations. Students are provided with a number of presentations and experiential learning experiences from master’s- and doctoral-educated staff.

High school juniors residing in a participating Schuylkill County school district are eligible to apply. Please see brochure or visit the program website for further eligibility specifics.
