Ozarks Healthcare in West Plains, Missouri, is once again holding its Medical Academy of Science and Health (M*A*S*H) Camp this summer in late July. Students wanting to participate need to register by May 19, 2023.
During the camp, the students learn about the different medical fields, including orthopedic surgery, radiology, pulmonology, emergency medicine, rehabilitation services, primary care, nursing, and more. The hospital physicians will also explain what a person needs to get into that field, such as experience, education, and the pros and cons of the specific field.
