Here at CMHS, a program called Clinicals is available to make kids want to learn, study medicine, and help patients. This program is great for starters because it gives an extra boost on what to expect and it’s something all future med students will love.

To start off, first you will learn the basics of medicine and patient care. You will get hands on experiences and have your own workplace to pretend to be knowledgeable nurses. You will get size checked for scrubs and wear them on days you work or on clinical days like Wednesdays and Thursdays. To be able to take this class, you have to take foundations and advanced principles throughout 10th and 11th grade with at least an 80. After you pass, your senior year you will be allowed to take clinicals where you take it further and experience the hospitals once and for all.

You can assist and do things in your scope of practice but may not do anything for the safety of the patients and your supervisor. Only the nurses and people who work there can do more and until then, you assist with what you’re assigned to. This class helps you get out of your comfort zone and meet new people. Making new friends and being sociable is essential because you have to work with different people and people you don’t like in the hospitals. This is a great experience for those who love the study of medicine and helping patients.
