LMC Welcomes Students for Partners Program

Lexington Medical Center is celebrating the 25th anniversary of the Partners Program, a summer internship inside the hospital for some of the best and brightest high school students in Lexington County.

The Partners Program introduces students to a career in health care. During a three-week session, students will rotate through three clinical areas in the mornings, participating in real world, career experiences by helping with bed making, checking vital signs, stocking supplies and general duties while being supervised by a mentor. In the afternoon, there are field trips to Lexington Medical Center Occupational Health, Lexington Medical Park Otarre Pointe, Midlands Technical College, Lexington Medical Center Extended Care, the University of South Carolina School of Nursing and Sleep Solutions.

The first session was from June 8 – June 26. The second session is July 6 – July 24. A Partners Program graduation will take place on Friday, July 24 on the hospital campus.

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 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. Applicants went through a rigorous interview process with a written application and an interview with a panel of hospital staff members.

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.
