Discover Healthcare is a career exploration event to be held annually in alternating areas throughout the Northland.

This is not your typical job or career fair. Modeled after the highly successful Bridges Career Academies and Workplace Connection event in the Brainerd Lakes area, this unique format allows students to participate in hands-on, interactive experiences that relate to a variety of fields within healthcare. Discover Healthcare events aim to give students exposure to jobs and careers available to them at varying stages of educational achievement within the healthcare industry. There are many reasons Discover Healthcare is so exciting:

  • It takes a true community-led approach for success and multiple organizations making planning a reality
  • Volunteers from employers and educators to partners and students executing the event
  • Employers and Educational partners create stations for this event
  • An innovative way to get students interested in careers while also engaging with employers at a time when CTE offerings and funding in schools is limited yet the needs of our employers continue to grow
  • Students and career seekers will be able to explore potential careers in the hands-on area and then be able to talk to the educational partners tabled in the commons area
  • The hands-on activities allow the students and career seekers to “try on” a career.
  • Helps students and career seekers understand what careers are available to them within the healthcare industry in “their own backyard”
  • Meant to serve as the first experience for healthcare, hopefully functioning as a feeder into other opportunities such as SCRUBS camps and HOSA membership, PSEO options.

These events will provide an opportunity to showcase the various types of careers, job opportunities, and/or education students can find at local organizations available in the region such as:

  • Health Informatics and Information Management
  • Medical Coding & Billing
  • Radiology, Sonography, Radiation Therapy
