During their three-week session, students will rotate through three clinical areas in the mornings. They will participate in afternoon activities two days a week at the University of South Carolina School of Nursing, Midlands Technical College’s surgical technician program and LMC Extended Care.

The Partners Program continues to be a popular program with Lexington County students and hospital staff. In fact, several hospital employees participated in the program when they attended high school.

Supported by the Lexington Medical Center Foundation, this year’s Partners Program received more than 100 applications. The students went through a rigorous interview process with a written application and an interview with a panel of hospital staff members.

At the end of the program, the Lexington Medical Center Foundation will award 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.

The Lexington Medical Center Foundation thanks the South Carolina National Safety Council, NORD Family Foundation, Colonial Life and Women of Hope for supporting the 2016 Partners Program.

Congratulations to this year’s Partners Program participants.

During a three-week session, students will rotate through three clinical areas in the mornings. In addition, they will participate in hands-on activities two days a week at the University of South Carolina College of Pharmacy, Midlands Technical College and Lexington Medical Center Extended Care. Students will also tour the hospital’s lab, view a virtual surgery and participate in a team-building activity.

Supported by Lexington Medical Center Foundation, the Safety Council of South Carolina and Colonial Life & Accident Insurance Company, this year’s Partners Program received more than 100 applications. At the end of the program, a rising senior from each Lexington County high school and one rising senior from home/private schools will be awarded a $1,000 book scholarship for their freshman year of college.

The Partners Program continues to be a popular program with Lexington County students and LMC staff. In fact, several hospital employees participated in the program when they attended high school. Jon Bridges, associate director in the Physician Network, is one of those employees.

“The Partners Program gave me an early opportunity to learn about health care in our area. As a result, I realized that I wanted to seek further hands-on exposure to determine if health care was a good, long-term fit for me,” Bridges said.
