Affinity Health System encourages students of all ages to learn more about the health care field. We offer a variety of student tours, job shadows, nursing clinicals and other educational opportunities for students in the Fox Cities and Oshkosh who want to learn more about a career in health care.
Elementary School, Middle School and High School Student Tours
We invite school groups into our hospitals to introduce students to the hospital in an educational, non-scary way. Children who tour a hospital are less likely to fear a future visit or patient stay.
