The Texas Allied Health Education Center concluded its three-day Health Careers Exploration and Observation Days at Victoria College on Wednesday.

Fourteen recent high school graduates and students from the area received instruction and information on careers in the medical profession. The group also toured Victoria’s Citizens Medical Center and DeTar Hospital Navarro.

The participants were selected from a group of applicants and represented Victoria East, Victoria West, Industrial, Austwell-Tivoli and Goliad high schools.

“The Observation Days are designed to help students decide what direction they want to go before they start spending time and money in college,” said Jody Sanders, senior program director for Texas AHEC East.

The group received instruction in emergency medical services, respiratory care, physical therapy assistant and nursing while at VC.

“I liked learning about all the career opportunities and what VC has to offer,” said Victoria East graduate Brieanna Moreno, who plans on attending Victoria College in the fall.

“I want to work with medical robotics,” said Kyra Williams, a 2016 Goliad graduate. “I have learned how all the different medical fields work together.”
