New London Hospital is proud to announce that eight students from three New Hampshire high schools completed the 2014 Caring Student Intern (CSI) Program. The CSI program is a four-day course that provides a unique hands-on learning opportunity designed for high school students to explore the healthcare industry and healthcare career opportunities.
This year, students from Bishop Brady High School, Hopkinton Middle High School and Kearsarge Regional High School participated. The students had the opportunity to go behind the scenes and visit several areas in the hospital including the Emergency Department, Radiology, Laboratory, Physical Therapy, The William P. Clough Center and others. They also partook in hands-on classes and learned about infection control, proper hand washing procedures, application and interview skills, quality improvement, and patient safety. The CSI program was rounded out with some students receiving their initial CPR certifications and others receiving CPR recertifications. All students were honored with certificates of completion of the CSI program.
