NIH Invites High School Students to Learn More about Careers in Health or Medical Science

Since 2006, the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of Science Education has sponsored SciLife, a program designed to promote careers in health or medical sciences.

One of many NIH projects supporting high school science education, SciLife brings together students, parents, and educators for a day of workshops and speakers with special expertise in health and biomedical fields.

In addition, the program addresses such issues as selecting high school courses, finding a college match, preparing an application, and funding an education—all in the context of promoting greater interest in health and medical science.

This year’s event, scheduled for October 16th, at the L’Enfant Plaza Hotel, in downtown DC, has a number of terrific workshops on the agenda including:

• The SAT/ACT Game—How to Win
• Summer Jobs and Internships—The Experts Tell All!
• Self Help Strategies for Science Related Careers
• Demystifying College—From Application to Graduation

Registration is available on the SciLife website. There is no cost for attending, and lunch is provided. But hurry, as class sizes are limited and filled on a first-come, first served basis.
