Welcome to MedQ Explore!
MedQ Explore is SVTAHEC’s new healthcare career exploration curriculum. In this program, students will engage in online learning over five days that will introduce them to the many healthcare careers available to them. In addition, we will have modules that will explore topics in healthcare such as telemedicine, patient diagnostics, and medical ethics. Students will learn from Vermont Student Assistance Corporation (VSAC) staff about financial aid and the college application process and we will explore leadership and self-development soft skills that will aid you in your future.
Eligibility: Students who are currently enrolled in grades 10, 11, and 12 and are residents of Addison, Bennington, Rutland, Windham, or Windsor counties; or live in a neighboring state and attend a Vermont regional technical/career center or attend a public or private southern Vermont high school.
Application information: There are two programs – one for students who have never participated in a MedQuest program and one for students who have completed a MedQuest program – online or in person. This application is for both programs – simply select the appropriate program for you! Selection is based on your application and one reference — only complete applications (application and one reference) received by the deadline will be considered for admission.
Cost: The cost of the program is $600.00 which includes all supplies needed for the program. Upon acceptance, a non-refundable deposit of $75 is due no later than April 9, 2021. The remaining program balance is due on or before May 7, 2021. Scholarships are available — parents/guardians should complete the scholarship application at the end of the main application.
MedQ Explore is a structured program and students are expected to participate in all program components.
Application deadline is midnight on March 22, 2021.
