The University of North Dakota (UND) Rural Collaborative Opportunities for Occupational Learning in Health (R-COOL-Health) Scrubs Academy I is a four day/three night camp held on the UND campus. The camp is open to any North Dakota student who will have completed 6th, 7th, or 8th grade as of June 2023. The cost is $275 per student.
The Scrubs Academy encourages middle school students from across North Dakota to pursue a career in healthcare. Students participate in hands-on activities and receive information related to a variety of healthcare professions. In addition to the experiences with healthcare professionals, students are certified in Friends and Family CPR and the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA).
The Scrubs Academy serves as a mini-preparation program to strengthen academic skill sets associated with health disciplines, introduce adolescents to a higher education experience, and foster a relationship between the students and the University. Students will sleep in the UND residence halls all three evenings.
