Medical Explorers

Together with Boy Scouts of America, Coastal Georgia District, Southeast Georgia Health System has begun a Health Careers Explorer Post for local students ages 14–21.

The participants meet monthly  to hear presentations from different departments throughout the Health System. Explorer Posts are active at both Brunswick and Camden campuses.

Every month is unique and the students have the opportunity to engage in hands on activities related to various career paths in health care. This program provides Explorers information on education requirements, potential salaries and typical responsibilities of careers in a Health System. Equipped with scrub top uniforms, these self-motivated students conduct business about the post and actively engage in their career search. A group of Health System volunteers help facilitate the post and also mentor students in leadership roles.

The explorers also have the opportunity to volunteer at Health System sponsored events in order to give back to the community. Each of these activities provides the students with a rich experience that will shape their future careers not only in healthcare, but other industries as well.
