COLUMBIA, Tenn. — Maury Regional Medical Center (MRMC) will welcome high school students in June for the 2022 Maury Academy for Students in Health (MASH) program, a one-week summer camp for students interested in pursuing careers in health care.

MASH is coordinated by MRMC’s Volunteer Services Department and is accepting online applications through February. Accepted MASH students will have the opportunity to learn about multiple areas of medicine and health-related disciplines from MRMC health care professionals.

MASH will take place June 6–10, 2022. If accepted, students would be required to attend the full session.
