SARANAC LAKE -- A year of academics and clinical rotations under the guidance of Adirondack Health professionals has begun for 12 regional high school seniors participating in the New Vision program, including Ranya Hamdan of Long Lake.

Now in its 11th year, New Vision is a program of BOCES of Franklin, Essex and Hamilton counties that offers select seniors a rigorous academic year with an inside look at various healthcare career opportunities.

Along with a challenging college preparatory curriculum including English, Anatomy and Physiology, Medical Terminology, Government, Economics and current health topics, the students spend time shadowing hospital personnel.

Students will gain first-hand perspectives from staff in the emergency department, oncology unit, intensive care unit, pharmacy, medical imaging department, rehabilitation services and surgical and nursing services among other areas at Adirondack Medical Center here.

Requirements to participate in the New Vision program are demanding: students must demonstrate above average written and verbal skills, have completed three years of science and three years of math, be recommended by their guidance counselor and principal, and must meet health standards for working in hospital settings.

Upon completion of the program students will have earned 13 credit hours from North Country Community College.

For more information about New Vision contact program director Alison Riley-Clark at (518) 897-2207.
