MASH Student Program

COVID-19 Update:

The Maury Academy for Students in Health (MASH) program will not be offered in 2021. While we realize the MASH program offers numerous benefits to area students, we must place the highest priority on serving our patients and protecting the health of the community. We look forward to being able to resume the program in 2022.

The Maury Academy for Students in Health (MASH) Program is a two-week health careers summer camp held each June for high school students interested in learning about health professions.

Exposure to different areas of medicine and health-related professions is an integral part of the MASH experience. Students interact with experts such as physicians, registered nurses, medical technologists, radiologic technologists and respiratory therapists. During the program, students learn about physical assessment, casting, suturing, medical terminology and much more. 

Applicants must be entering their junior or senior year in high school, have completed one biology class, demonstrate scholastic ability and critical thinking skills and provide recommendations from school personnel. Students must also attend an interview as part of the application process.

The program will not be offered in 2021. Please check back for more details about the 2022 MASH program.
