About MedStart Summer Camp

MedStart is a 5-day summer program aimed at developing the next generation of healthcare providers. Hosted by the Montana AHEC (Areas Health Education Center) and the Montana Hospital Association, MedStart camp immerses students in campus life while providing opportunities to explore a variety of health care careers through simulation activities and job shadows at local facilities. Students also attend college planning sessions to map out their college and career goals. After camp, each regional AHEC office provides support to students that include college resources, financial aid updates, scholarships and connections to further job shadowing within their hometown.
Past activities have included: Dissections; Nursing simulation lab; Dental assisting; Health Information Technology demonstrations; Mock disaster training/ EMS; Cadaver lab and X-Ray activities.
Open to current high school sophomores and juniors.
Scholarships are available for students who come from disadvantaged backgrounds, low-income families, rural areas, minorities, or will be first in their family to attend college.
