Medical Explorers Club

The Medical Explorers Club (MEC) sponsored by Inova Children's Hospital is available for high school students in the area who are interested in a career in healthcare. Medical Explorers Club members hear from various healthcare professionals about their careers. Sessions are designed to be hands-on and interactive. The club also provides leadership and volunteering opportunities.

Program Overview


Purpose and Goals:
  • Provide our community’s youth with an overview of the many different careers in health care
  • Provide a social network of peers and adult mentors from the health care field
Program Components:
  • Hands-on sessions that focus on specific health care professions
  • Volunteer opportunities with Inova Children’s Hospital’s community events
  • Social activities
  • Programming is guided by members, so that they get the exact information that they are interested in.
  • This program is FREE
Time Commitment:
  • Meetings and events will occur one to two times per month, typically on Tuesday evenings.
  • Members are not required to attend every meeting or event.  We ask that students attend as many as possible and that they notify the club advisor (Jamie Gentille) if they will not be attending meetings for a long period of time (due to school commitments, sports, etc).
Application Process:
Membership for Medical Explorers Club is currently full, and we are not accepting new members at this time. Please check back here periodically. When we are able to accept new members, we will post information on how to apply.
