Congratulations, Partners!

Today, Lexington Medical Center held a graduation ceremony for participants in the 2017 Partners Program, a health care internship at the hospital for high school students from Lexington County. In its 27th year, the Partners Program attracts some of the best and brightest high school students in Lexington County every summer.

The 2017 Partners Program focused on allied health careers with interactive, hands-on seminars, clinical rotations and tours of educational institutions. While students learned about all areas of health care, the internship highlighted the work of allied health professionals including physical therapists, radiology technicians and surgical technologists.

During a three-week session, students rotated through three clinical areas in the mornings. They participated in afternoon activities two days a week at the University of South Carolina School of Nursing, Midlands Technical College’s surgical technologist program and Lexington Medical Center Extended Care.

At the end of the program, the Lexington Medical Center Foundation awarded a rising senior from each Lexington County high school and one rising senior from home/private schools with a $1,000 book scholarship for their freshman year of college.
