Visalia high school students will get a glimpse of work days for doctors and nurses Monday while touring Kaweah Delta Medical Center.
Two classes of preselected students will see what doctors and nurses at the hospital do each day. They will visit interactive stations, testing their clinical and decision-making skills during realistic patient scenarios. Later in the week, students will meet physicians, nurses, physical therapists and pharmacists to learn about health care careers.
The program, Doc Band, is a partnership with Kaweah Delta Medical Center, the Tulare County Office of Education, Visalia Economic Development Corporation, Visalia Unified School District and Central Valley Christian Schools.
Students will tour the hospital from 8:30 a.m. to noon Monday.
