CTE High School Students

High School Internships - Carteret Health Care provides a number of programs for high school students to increase their awareness of health careers with the aim of expanding the healthcare workforce and diversity in Eastern North Carolina. We provide practical information to assist students in making informed decisions about potential careers in healthcare. By partnering with the Carteret County School System, high school students in 11th and 12th grades are able to participate in a CTE class that includes an internship in our hospital. Students will learn about various health care careers and experience what it is like to work in their own hometown environment.
