GAINESVILLE, TX – North Texas Medical Center’s Junior Volunteer Program is wrapping up this month with 13 high school and college students gaining experience in several healthcare-related fields.

The program allows the volunteers to experience working in a variety of hospital departments. They are able to interact with doctors, nurses, hospital staff, patients and families. The students volunteered in Physical Therapy, Labor and Delivery, Medical Imaging, Laboratory, Emergency Department, Surgical Services, ICU, Respiratory Therapy, NTMC Health Primary Care, Pediatrics Care and Women’s Care.

“It was great to see so many young people register for the program this year. It’s exciting to see how many are interested in a career in healthcare,” NTMC Marketing Director Darin Allred said. “We have students who want to be nurses, doctors, physical therapists and nurse practitioners. Even before they get to college, they have a plan for their career and this program is giving them an insight of what to expect.”

Students participating in the program include Anderson Ahn (Frisco Heritage HS), Zyla Alonso (Gainesville HS), Ella Ayscue (Conley, NC), Celeste Buenos Aires (Gainesville HS), Stephanie Chombo (Valley View HS), Ximena Cortez (Gainesville HS), Zoe Davis (Belton HS), Emma Dieter (Lindsay HS), Reese Hightower (Muenster HS), Sam Lockhart (Muenster HS), Emily Montoya (Gainesville HS), Dhruv Patel (Lindsay HS/Texas A&M) and Meadow Walterscheid (Muenster HS).
