The students completed a written application, submitted transcripts and letters of reference. They also interviewed with a panel of hospital associates and demonstrated extraordinary individual merit to earn a spot in the program.

The students include:

• Maria Gryparis, Mundelein High School

• Barton Huang, Stevenson High School in Lincolnshire

• Austin Keller, Lake Zurich High School

• Samir Khowaja, Jacobs High School in Algonquin

• Sarah Ludwigsen, Lake Zurich High School

• John McManus, St. Viator High School in Arlington Heights

• Hannah O'Hagan, Marian Central High School in Woodstock

• Madhavi Patel, Barrington High School

• Koral Shah, Barrington High School

• Allison Wlodek, Cary-Grove High School in Cary

The program provides students a unique opportunity. "Normally high school students cannot come in to a hospital and observe the different health care roles in action," said Dr. Barry Rosen, vice president, Medical Management. "There is so much happening within the hospital. The students are exposed to different roles, and possibly choosing a different career paths than they thought they might."

The student's interest in a particular field will guide his or her observations during the program. Experts within the various fields will provide guidance and mentoring to students throughout the three-week program. Additional information includes future job outlook, education required for specific health care professions, and projected annual salaries.
