Testimonials

Helped me come to a decision

I came to this program when I was very indecisive about what I wanted to be in future or what I wanted to study after high school.

After being exposed to the variety of fields of medicine it opened my eyes to specific possibilities. Thank you for helping me see my future.

Inspired me to continue where I was going

The program made it possible for me to see all different sides of health care. Being able to actually sit down and work with the tools in a mouth assured me that's what I want to become, a Dentist.

Parents feedback

 I would like to take the opportunity to say thank you to all those involved in this program. My daughter was fortunate to attend 4 day program. She explained to me that it was one of that happiest times she has had through her education. She was able to meet with many other students from around BC who share the same goal as herself. She also came home with a greater sense of self worth and a higher self esteem. Thank you so much for allowing this wonderful opportunity!    

Still planning my future

I’m currently in grade 11 and I haven’t yet made a definite decision on what career path I’m going to take. But being able to experience more closely what a healthcare career is like, I’m definitely interested in that field.

More than a classroom tour

I was able to learn a lot of things that I wasn’t aware of before. This program allowed me to see what healthcare professions did on a day to day basis and ask them questions about their career. I think this made it easier to find which careers I am interested in and people we can relate to.

A real eye opener

 It was very enlightening and intriguing to see such a wide variety of career choices and to meet fellow students with the same passion and goals to make a difference in others lives. It has opened my eyes and I am seriously considering some of the options you shared with us. I look forward to working and serving with in the Prince George community in the near future.
