Diagnosis Day

Diagnosis Day is a one-day experience on the St. Charles Bend campus. This program is for high school students from rural, Central Oregon with an interest in health care careers. Student participants will follow a “patient” from incident- to ambulance- to emergency room- throughout the entire hospital experience, including rehab, recovery and release. Along the way, students will be exposed to many of  the various health care careers that impact that patient, as well as receive a hands-on experience with an advanced simulation manikin.

The scenario for the “patient” presents an incident with which the students can identify. A typical scenario might involve trauma from a bike accident where a helmet was not worn or trauma from a car accident caused by distracted driving.

If you are a high school teacher, counselor or administrator in the CEAHEC region and wish to bring a group of students to Diagnosis Day, please contact Debbie Cole at dmcole@stcharleshealthcare.org    or call 541-706-2773 to reserve your day.
