The Summer 2021 FHP program, a health career exploration program, has two options this summer. One will be held virtually on weekdays from July 6th - July 16th, from 3pm-4pm CST. The other will be an in-person one-week FHP intensive, held from June 28th - July 2nd, 1pm-3pm CST. The in-person program will be held at the Main Branch of the WCPL. Students have the option to select one or the other on their application, found below. Throughout both programs, students will explore different areas of the healthcare field through experimentation, hands on activities, and guest speakers.
