The BOCES New Vision ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â‚¬Å“ Allied Health Careers Program at A.L. Lee Memorial Hospital is well under way for 2008-09.
These pupils spend half days onsite at Lee Memorial, participating in clinical rotations throughout the school year to learn and observe a variety of health professions. They also spend college-level classroom time earning advanced placement credits under the tutelage of New Vision Instructor Eileen Ponto, R.N.
New Vision students must have an interest in pursuing higher education towards a health career. They must submit an application, provide recommendations from teachers and/or guidance counselors, complete an interview, and demonstrate high levels of academic achievement in order to be considered for acceptance into the program.
