Why Go?

Why Go Graphic.pngSouth Dakota's healthcare industry is projected to be among the largest growth industries from 2012-2022. 

Doctor icon sm.pngA focus has been placed on high school graduates who can replace the retirees in the workforce and continue to provide quality healthcare services across the state. Over the past several years, the Department of Health has co-sponsored Health Career Camps as a way to expand the pipeline for the future healthcare workforce. These camps are one-day, hands-on health career exploration opportunities for high school students.

Students will hear from a variety of healthcare professionals who will discuss what they do and how they got into their professions. Students will also have a chance to experience many hands-on activities throughout the day ... all in an effort to build and sustain South Dakota's future healthcare workforce!
