Rural Collaborative Opportunities for Occupational Learning in Health (R-COOL-Health) Scrubs Program

penguinWelcome to the Rural Collaborative Opportunities for Occupational Learning in Health (R-COOL-Health) Scrubs Program!

The Center for Rural Health offers three different Scrubs programs: the R-COOL-Health Scrubs Academy I, R-COOL-Health Scrubs Academy II, and the R-COOL-Health Scrubs Camps.

The R-COOL-Health Scrubs programs are opportunities for students to learn about careers in healthcare from healthcare professionals in fun, interactive ways. The Scrubs programs aim to increase awareness about multidisciplinary health careers and encourage students to pursue a career in healthcare.

R-COOL-Health Scrubs Academy I

The R-COOL-Health Scrubs Academy I is a four day/three night camp held on the University of North Dakota Campus, and is open to any North Dakota junior high student who has completed Grade 6, 7, or 8.

R-COOL-Health Scrubs Academy II

The R-COOL-Health Scrubs Academy II is a four day/three night camp based out of Minot, and is open to any North Dakota high school student who has completed Grade 9, 10, or 11.

R-COOL-Health Scrubs Camps

The R-COOL-Health Scrubs Camps are one-day camps in rural communities. A partnership that includes, at minimum, a local healthcare facility, economic or job development authority, and school work to create a one-day camp for students to learn about careers in healthcare from local healthcare professionals.
