27 High School Students Finish "Rounding"
After rounding for the past 16 weeks, 27 high school students from Smithtown East and West, Commack and Chaminade High Schools, graduated from St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center’s Health Care Exploration and Internship Program (HCEIP). The students were awarded certificates signed by Senator John J. Flanagan for completed the rigorous 16-week program.
The unique program, now in its eight year, offers aspiring young health care professionals to gain hands on experience, as well as industry information in various departments, including nursing, pharmacy, dietary, laboratory, to name a few. Admitted students selected had to meet several requirements to participate in the program and will receive half a health care credit upon completion.
