Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Medical Exploring Application Now Open for Antelope Valley High School Students
Kaiser Permanente hosted a tour of the Antelope Valley Medical Offices for its 55 Medical Exploring high school students visiting departments such as Ophthalmology with Dr. Khodam Rostomian.
Lancaster, Calif., April 15, 2019 — Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley is now accepting Medical Exploring applications from Antelope Valley high school students for the 2019-2020 school year program.
Exploring is Learning for Life’s career education program for young men and women who are at least 14 (and have completed 8th grade) and not yet 21 years-old. Exploring is all about helping young adults make more informed decisions about future careers and determine which career is the right one for them.
Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley physicians and employees volunteer their time to provide real-world career experiences for the explorers to help them gain practical knowledge in the medical field through a variety of activities.
As a youth-led program, students organize monthly meetings including hands-on learning presentations, a tour of the Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley Medical Offices and Kaiser Permanente Regional Lab, community service projects, CPR training, and a final educational field trip.
“Kaiser Permanente is proud to be a host for the Medical Exploring Program,” adds Amy Wiese, Community Benefit Manager, Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley. “With this program, we want to inspire the next generation of medical professionals who will serve the communities they grew up in.”
Applications are due May 17 and can be downloaded at kp.org/antelopevalley
The Medical Exploring Post 661 hosted by Kaiser Permanente Antelope Valley is one of many youth workforce development programs, including Hippocrates Circle for middle school students and our Volunteer Program for high school students and beyond.
Antelope Valley community leaders joined Kaiser Permanente and 47 students from AVUHSD as they received their Medical Exploring graduation certificates last year.
