At Healthcare Week, students are divided into teams and are responsible for running a safe, ethical, and affordable healthcare clinic. Teams are challenged to answer the question—how will we solve some of the world’s greatest healthcare crises and still keep our clinic fiscally viable to ensure care for those who need it? Each team is assigned a major illness or issue, such as breast cancer, diabetes, or AIDS, and are tasked with the challenge to invent an innovative new preventative method, treatment, or cure. Students learn about the gamut of healthcare careers and healthcare technology. Students visit the nursing skills centers at major universities and practice hands-on learning with modern medical equipment.
