This program provides summer learning opportunities to Ashtabula County high school juniors and seniors interested in healthcare careers. Students gain hands-on professional experience while raising awareness of career opportunities in their home community. When future generations of caregivers see firsthand that Ashtabula County is a great place to live, work and raise a family, they are less likely to leave our community.

Eight students from around Ashtabula County recently completed Ashtabula County Medical Center’s ACMC Academy. The summer internship lets high school students experience a variety of healthcare careers as they work daily alongside hospital caregivers. The majority of students who complete ACMC Academy continue into college to earn a healthcare-related degree.
“I am proud of the ACMC Academy and the students who come through our doors to learn more about healthcare,” said ACMC Healthcare System President and CEO Michael Habowski. “But I am equally as proud of the caregivers who take time out of their busy schedules to mentor these students. They show them the level of dedication it takes to be an ACMC caregiver, and they inspire the students to continue pursuing their dreams in healthcare.”
ACMC Foundation Executive Director Tammy Netkowicz, added her appreciation for caregivers who contribute their time, experience, and knowledge. “Our caregivers make this program, and we are grateful. Many of them look forward to this every summer as much as the students do.”
