Event Description
Northern Virginia Community College (NOVA) and Virginia Hospital Center will again partner to offer middle school-aged students interested in healthcare, the opportunity to interact with medical professionals in a variety of disciplines.
Camp Dates:
Camp for Middle School Students, in partnership with Virginia Hospital Center.
July 29 – August 2 (with students at MEC, Tues/Thurs, July 30 and Aug 1)
August 12-16 (with students at MEC, Tues/Thurs, Aug 13 and 15)
At NOVA, students will become certified in HeartSavers (CPR/Basic Life Support) and participate in a Crime Scene Investigation (CSI) simulation, where they will be exposed to the fields of police-forensics, EMS, Nursing, Respiratory Therapy and Diagnostic Imaging.

At Virginia Hospital Center, they will participate in a simulation in the pulmonary and cardiac catheterization labs, ER, pharmacy, radiology, rehabilitation and medical diagnostics areas; they will participate in a mock Operating Room and learn to use a stethoscope.
'This is a very sought-after camp,' said Mary Ellen Gannon of Virginia Hospital Center. 'Students from previous years are just begging to come back, but we have to limit the size to ensure the best experience. It is such a great learning opportunity.'
