Upon completion, students will have met the requirements to take the state certification examination. Credits can be considered dual credit so you are receiving High School internship credits as well. Students must be 16 years or older.

Camp MedStars is a multi-day summer camp hosted at COCC’s Bend Campus for high school students entering their senior year interested in pursuing a career in the healthcare field.
