St. Catherine’s Maternity Team Educates Future Generations

St. Catherine of Siena Medical Center’s Healthcare Exploration and Internship Program (HCEIP) is educating future generations from Smithtown High School West, Smithtown High School East, Commack High School and Chaminade High School.

The unique program, now in its eighth year, offers aspiring young health care professionals the opportunity to gain hands-on experience, as well as industry information in various departments, including nursing, pharmacy, diet and laboratory, to name a few. Admitted students selected had to meet several requirements to participate in the program and will receive half a health care credit upon completion.

This week a select group of students, interested in obstetrics and gynecology, took a tour of the maternity department and had the opportunity to speak directly with professionals about what it would be like to work in a variety of positions, from labor and delivery to postpartum.
“It was very interesting and makes me want to become a doctor even more,” said one of the students.
