Healthcare for High School Students

At Intermountain Healthcare, we recognize the importance of discovering pathways into healthcare at an early age. We have tailored programs in different areas to help high school students get started. [insert high school outreach image]

Wasatch Front High School Partnership
High school students are involved in a semester long work study that allows them to participate in targeted healthcare programs within Intermountain Healthcare, Salt Lake Community College, Shriners Hospital for Children and MountainStar Health. In 2020 a virtual health career day was available for students across Utah.

Center for Professional Advanced Studies (CAPS)
This is currently being implemented in Park City High School, Wasatch High School and Provo High School.

Please visit the following school’s website for more information:

Future Healthcare Heroes

This is an Intermountain Healthcare sponsored program for sophomore to senior level high school students. It provides interactive experiences where students can explore different healthcare careers throughout the school year.

Twenty students will be invited to participate in hands-on learning once a month at one of our facilities. Video links will be made available to students who are not invited in person, we want to invite anyone who is interested in Healthcare to learn more. Anyone can explore career pathways through the Future Healthcare Hero Video Series. [link to series]
