Magnolia Regional Medical Center will host the 2020 MASH program.

Magnolia Regional Medical Center has announced that applications for the 2020 MASH program are now available.

Magnolia's seventh annual Medical Applications of Science for Health (MASH) will be held June 8-19 at Magnolia Regional Medical Center.

During the two-week summer day camp, students complete certification in basic first aid and CPR and learn the importance of healthy lifestyle habits. Reinforcement of the connection between the basic sciences and medical diagnosis and treatment occurs through lectures, labs, hands-on activities, facility tours, clinical interaction and job shadowing.

Exposure to different health professions is an integral part of the MASH experience.

Students learn to identify various health care disciplines, what they do, how they relate to one another and how the fundamentals of anatomy, biology, pharmacology and physiology apply to each discipline. Program evaluations indicate that because of MASH, participants are more likely to pursue health careers, primary care, and practice in rural or under-served areas.

Students must have completed high school Biology prior to participating in MASH.

Students must have 2 letters of recommendation from a science teacher and/or school counselor.

Students should be in 10th and 11th grade at the time of application, to participate in a summer camp prior to their 11th or 12th-grade year.

Students must have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA.

All participating students must complete, sign, and return to director all required paperwork and consent forms by designated deadlines.

Students must currently be enrolled in any public, private or home school program in Columbia or Lafayette counties.
