Students are immersed in a blend of lectures, interactive experiences and group discussions over a one day, eight-hour period.

The goal of the YEP! Program is to increase the number of middle school students, specifically minority and vulnerable populations, who are interested in pursuing a career in health care. Students from all nine counties comprising the Eastern Shore will be invited to participate in the YEP! Program. These counties include Caroline, Cecil, Dorchester, Kent, Queen Anne’s, Talbot, Somerset, Worcester, and Wicomico. The YEP! Program will allow more children to say yes to a future career in health care.
