Around Campus

A look at campus life at various community and junior colleges

Students work the Healthcare Occupational Bootcamp.

Summer vacation is a happy time for teens — nice weather and no homework. But not all Madison-area teens are saying goodbye to the classroom. A number of them will be taking part in Madison Area Technical College’s (Wis.) Career Discovery Boot Camps.

From biotech and neuroscience to movie making and script writing, they’ll be getting a head start on their careers. In addition to the courses targeted to teens, underage students can enroll in many of our other noncredit courses if the subject matter is age-appropriate and permission forms are completed. Each day, students will have hands-on exposure to a different healthcare occupation (nursing, dental, RT, emergency medicine and PT programs). Students will work in the new state-of-the-art Health Education facilities to check vital signs, do assessments, make dental molds, wrap injuries, and take part in a simulated emergency.
