Hands on Healthcare

Attention Teachers and Counselors!

Hands on Healthcare

Bellin College, in partnership with local high schools, has created a free, one day experience in our Health Sciences Resource Center (HSRC) called Hands on Healthcare. Students spend the day rotating through stations practicing skills and techniques guided by Bellin College students, faculty and healthcare professionals. This immersive, hands-on experience promotes the advantages and benefits of pursuing a high demand career in healthcare using state-of-the-art technology.

  • Rotations through seven 30-minute stations
    exposing students to:

    • Radiology
    • Physical Therapy
    • Sonography
