2020 C.H.A.M.P.S. Program
Community Health Applied in Medical Public Service
hosted by Conway Regional Health System
C.H.A.M.P.S. (Community Health Applied in Medical Public Service), is a free one-week summer program that introduces rising high school students (entering 10th or 11th grade in the fall of 2020) to careers in health care.
Students will learn from a wide variety of health care professionals, take part in hands-on and team-building activities, perform mock medical procedures (including but not limited to dissection, suturing, imaging, wrapping techniques and casting, CPR) as well as tour Conway Regional facilities. It’s too much to list, but a lot will be covered over the week.
To be considered, all four parts of the application must be received by the deadline of Sunday, March 29, 2020 at 11:59pm. They are:
- Student Application
- Faculty/Teacher Recommendation
- School Counselor Academic Endorsement
- Parent/Guardian Consent
Students will be selected based on GPA, statement/essay describing their desire to attend C.H.A.M.P.S., teacher/faculty recommendation, parental/guardian consent, extra-curricular activities and community service, as well as awards and accomplishments. If accepted, students must commit to attending the full program which meets daily from 8am-4pm from Monday, July 27 through Friday, July 31. All students who apply will be notified by letter or email of their status by April 15, 2020.
This program is located at Conway Regional Health System, 2302 College Avenue in Conway, Arkansas. Transportation nor housing are provided for the program. Students selected for the program should make arrangements for their own transportation and housing if needed.
