HCA/TriStar Health Care Academy
Sunday, June 2, 2019 8:00 AM-Friday, June 7, 2019 9:00 PM
At the Lipscomb University College of Pharmacy, service goes one step further through the Mission and Community Service Program; a voluntary program taking its cue from the overall faith-based mission of the university.
The Lipscomb-HCA/TriStar Health Care Academy introduces rising 10th through 12th grade students to a wide variety of health science professions with experiences related to pharmacy, nursing, nutrition, and exercise science. Students will have (non-risk) hands-on experiences and participate in science laboratories as well as instruction in CPR, basic first aid, EKG, AED, and non-invasive measurements such as blood pressure and pulse.
This will be a residential academy with housing provided in on-campus dormitories. Attendance is limited to 30 students, and acceptance is based on a competitive application. Cost of attendance is $400, which covers 3 meals each day, field trips, lodging (on campus dormitories), supplies, and incidentals. Scholarships are available up to full cost with submission of the pdf form above. Awards are made through a committee review process. For more information contact Michaela Gregory at firstname.lastname@example.org or 1.888.58.PHARM or 615.966.6656.
The deadline to apply and the deadline to submit the scholarship form is April 1.
Students will receive acceptance and scholarship notifications on April 15, and the attendance confirmation and payment is due May 4.
