La Grande, Oregon: Find your future in healthcare and have serious fun at MedQuest Camp

Northeast Oregon AHEC is thrilled to be bringing our 30-year-long MedQuest camp back in person this summer! Along with partners at Grande Ronde Hospital, other local facilities, and amazing staff, campers are sure to improve their understanding of careers in healthcare care. They will enhance their knowledge of rural medicine, all while having an amazing time and making new friends.

Campers will have job shadows, learn about intubation and search and rescue, hear from current healthcare professionals and students in healthcare education programs, and participate in a multitude of hands-on activities.

Highlights include:

  • Three job shadows in healthcare
