Co-op (Partnership with Black River Falls High School)

This experience allows students to observe multiple departments at BRMH before choosing one to focus on for a few weeks. The Emergency Department and Surgical Services are excluded from the Co-op experience. The Co-op experience is for a scholastic semester, with the students coming to the department approximately five hours a week. The Organizational Development Department works closely with the Black River Falls High School to coordinate the program and determine if students meet the criteria. 

Students interested in this experience should talk with the Black River Falls High School Co-op coordinator to start this process. An application/selection process is followed and students must be High School Juniors or Seniors to participate.
