PCGH Hosts AHEC for the Eighteenth Year


2019 "A-HEC of a Summer" program has begun. There are two students participating this year, Emma Patin (FRA) and Lauren Webre (CHSPC).


The “AHEC of a Summer” program is an exciting opportunity for ninth, tenth and eleventh grade students with at least a 2.0 GPA who are interested in pursing a healthcare career. These students are given a chance to explore different career opportunities in medicine by volunteering at local hospitals. During the fifteen-day period in June, the students rotate through various hospital departments and job shadow practicing healthcare professionals.


They are able to obtain first hand knowledge about a variety of healthcare fields, learn about health issues and patient care, gain CPR certification and practice taking vital signs, attend interactive workshops, and participate in field trips.

The program is a state accredited elective course and students earn ½ unit of high school elective credit upon successful completion of the program.
