NEWPORT — This year marks the thirteenth year that North Country Hospital has supported Medquest, the week-long healthcare job shadowing program.

High school sophomores in northeastern and central Vermont have to apply for this special opportunity to participate in a structured, educational healthcare program.

They will be learning about medical careers while shadowing health professionals, acquiring basic medical skills, and exploring career and educational goals all while making new friends.

The students will travel to several hospitals in the northern part of the state.

The program is sponsored by Northeastern Vermont Area Health Education Center.
