Lexington Medical Center’s 2016 Partners Program class

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

During a 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 technologist program and Lexington Medical Center Extended Care.

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.

To apply, students must complete an application, which they can find online at https://lexmed-apply.fluidreview.com/
