M*A*S*H STUDENT SHADOWING PROGRAM AGAIN UNDERWAY AT AREA HOSPITALS

BULLHEAD CITY, AZ – For the second year, area high school students are undergoing an intense two week internship at both Bullhead City area hospitals.  The 16 students are being exposed to a wide variety of health care careers in addition to the traditional career paths of physicians and nurses.  The M*A*S*H program (Multiple Avenues of Successful Health Care) was first coordinated by the Bullhead Regional Economic Development Authority (BREDA) in conjunction with Valley View Medical Center (VVMC) in Ft. Mohave, Western Arizona Regional Medical Center (WARMC) in Bullhead City and the Colorado River Union High School District (CRUHSD).  This year, students are also participating from the Clark County School District and Mohave Accelerated Learning Center (MALC). All but one are incoming seniors from Mohave, River Valley and Laughlin High Schools, plus MALC.  One Laughlin student is a second-semester junior.  All will have 80 hours of thorough orientation and job shadowing.  When they graduate later this month, the students will have learned how to draw and type blood, received their CPR certifications, and spent time in an operating room, kitchens, medical accounting, housekeeping, plant operations and many more departments. BREDA president Lisa McCabe saw a presentation of another M*A*S*H program two years ago at an Arizona Association of Economic Development conference. “It was a win-win for our board to approve last year’s launch,” said McCabe, “and it was a...
