Since 2012, TLJMS has hosted an annual “Medical Externship” program in collaboration with Good Samaritan Medical Center and Wells Fargo to educate and inspire young students interested in healthcare careers. The School District of Palm Beach County has recognized TLJMS every year for this innovative program.
Dr. Roger Duncan, TLJMS Board President, leads the group of middle- school students as they get a front-row view of the inner workings of the hospital, including the many different specialties of medicine as well as health care career possibilities.
The students tour the hospital and get hands-on experience with orthopedic robotic technology, cardiac catheterization lab equipment, maternity-unit baby care demonstrations, and more.
