This week, AOC is a host site for the Bay Area Health Coalition’s Summer Scrubs Program. The program is open to Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors from local high schools that are interested in careers in the healthcare industry. Each day this week, a new group of 20 students will rotate through our Outpatient Surgery Center, X-ray department, Physical Therapy department and our clinic area to learn about our clinic flow and the types of injuries we treat at AOC. This is a great opportunity for students to be exposed to a wide range of health care careers and unique opportunity for AOC to give back to our community.
Another week of Summer Scrubs in the books at AOC. We were honored to meet so many young people who are the future of our healthcare industry. We hope we planted some seeds of knowledge and inspired them to learn to “grow their own plants.”
“Much education today is monumentally ineffective. All too often we are giving young people cut flowers when we should be teaching them to grow their own plants.” John W. Gardner
