Eight Hamilton High School students had the opportunity to learn about different healthcare careers as a result of participation in Froedtert Health Community Memorial Hospital’s 2014 Healthcare Career Academy. They were Jenna Ehlert, Brianna Pollari, Cassie Tilidetzke, Kerchia Lee, Katie Prescott, Vanessa Ignatew, Amanda Prusak, Jade Wallner.

To be selected for the program, students submitted formal applications which were reviewed by high school staff members. Successful applicants were interviewed by a team of hospital and high school staff. The students spent three weeks at Froedtert Health Community Memorial Hospital for four hours each day. The experience provided students with a well-balanced approach toward healthcare career exposure by shadowing and learning from professionals in various departments.
