Summer Health Institute
The Summer Health Institute at ASU’s College of Health Solutions is an illuminating introduction to health career options for high school students. Students who have completed their junior year learn about what it means to be a physician, dentist, physical therapist, optometrist, physician assistant, occupational therapist and health care provider. Participants benefit from expertise at Creighton University School of Medicine at Dignity Health's St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center that informs their experience and learning through interaction with working health professionals. Because of generous support from community partners, there is no cost to participants in the Summer Health Institute.
