Health Science students from L.G. Pinkston High School’s H-TECH program recently had a worksite visit with industry partner Parkland Hospital.
The purpose of the visit was to provide students with insight into the skills that they will need to learn during their time at the academy and with working with Parkland. Additionally, this worksite visit served as a culminating activity for the work students have done this past semester. This worksite visit further supported the H-TECH model by allowing students the opportunity to see how working with an Industry partner will provide so much more than just a job upon graduation, it will lead them to an increasingly challenging and rewarding career.
Students were able to participate in the creation of New Employee Orientation materials, a tour of Parkland’s New Hospital, and a lunch in Parkland’s Hospital Cafeteria. The students were able to practice their workplace competencies, as well as see how their work over the semester contributed to the overall success of the worksite visit.
