Health Career Day

At Centra we believe that growing a diverse health care workforce is a community effort.  We realize that a missed opportunity in a classroom to spark the imagination and passion of a student is a loss to the community. In an effort to assist students in discovering and developing their passions, Centra offers Health Careers Day school programs at Centra Virginia Baptist Hospital. The program offers an opportunity for middle school students to explore the exciting world of health and medical careers through age appropriate dynamic learning experiences and activities for students, designed in conjunction with the various medical specialties and departments at Centra. Class size is limited to 30 students per group. Availability for programs through the year is limited.

Please note:  

  • Availability for programs through the year is limited to one per month. Please see available dates below. Schools can choose one of the two dates per month.  Once a date is chosen in a month the other date is no longer available.

  • All requests must be received by Centra 30 days or more in advance of requested date.  

  • Class size is limited to 30 students per group, and arrival time 9:00 AM and departure time 11:30 AM.

  • If the activity is cancelled due to weather or transportation issues, due to the nature of healthcare Centra is unable to reschedule the event.
