Some Columbia County high school students are getting an up close look at the medical field.

This semester, Harlem High school students  spent time learning from doctors and nurses at Eisenhower Medical Center performing rotations in different areas of the hospital.

It is the first time Eisenhower is opening its doors in this way to let teenagers learn what it takes to save lives.

“It’s the chance to live out my dream — and get confirmation that this is what i want to do with my life,” said Kaitlyn Rawlings, a student at Harlem.

“My favorite part is interacting with the patients. And not to mention, I learn something new everyday.”

For hospital staff, this is just another example of the strong bond between the military and the rest of our community.

“The staff loves it,” said Deputy Commander of Nursing Karina Barrow. “It’s great to bring these kids in. They’re inspiring us.”
