Event Information

Are you high school or college student or know a student interested in learning more about the medical field?

The Hughston Foundation, Three Rivers AHEC, Columbus Technical College, Columbus State University Nursing and Health Science, and Mercer University School of Medicine are holding the sixth annual Scrubs Camp this summer. Due to the overwhelming response to previous camps, this year we are offering it twice in June (June 13th – 16th) and July (July 11th – 14th) of 2022. The four-day camps are open to rising high-school freshmen through college sophomores who are interested in the medical field, and especially for those who are interested in the fields that specialize in sports medicine. 48 seats are available for each camp and the ONLY transportation being provided will be between CSU Nursing and Health Science campus (downtown) and Mercer University School of Medicine at midday. All other transportation to/from the camp locations will NOT be provided.

All students receive their own scrub top; which many wear to camp each day. In addition to tours of multiple facilities, there are many hands-on experiences related to the different medical fields. This is terrific forum for students to experience what medical illustration, a surgical nurse and a surgical technologist, a medical resident, a physician assistant, a physical therapist, and someone from the radiology departments can offer. Students will be exposed to anatomy through dissection and arthroscopy equipment on a cadaver specimen and watch a surgery videos.

For those students in the Healthcare Science Sports Medicine pathway, this is an especially good opportunity, but it also a great opportunity for anyone trying to decide what area of healthcare they might want to go into.


All camp dates are currently full. You can request to be added to a wait list should there be any cancellations.
