High School Students

You may be surprised to learn that great jobs in every medical specialty are within your reach, no matter your level of education. There are more than 350 different career  opportunities , and more than half of the 20 fastest growing careers nationally are in the health care industry.

Northeastern Vermont Area Health Education Center (AHEC) offers career exploration programs to students and adults. Click on the links on the left side of this page for more information about the MedQuest and CollegeQuest programs and see information below for our other programs.

Health Care Careers
Fun and interactive workshops, customized for high school and adult audiences explore the possibilities of  a career in health care. Participants leave with resources to learn more about the health care field, and an understanding of the diversity of skills, education levels, and work settings represented among health careers.

Northeastern Vermont MedQuest is a week-long, residential program on Johnson State College campus for Vermont 10th graders. MedQuest participants job-shadow with health care providers in northeastern and central Vermont, and learn skills that prepare them for jobs in a health care field.


To celebrate Health Careers Awareness Month, 11th grade students from around northeastern Vermont will make a trip to the University of Vermont Medical Center as part of Northeastern Vermont AHEC’s Health Careers Exploration program, or HCX.   HCX students will explore UVM’s Clinical Simulation Laboratory and tour UVM Medical Center’s Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine.  The students are being hosted by the Larner College of Medicine’s Med Mentors Student Interest Group.
