Healthcare Quest

Healthcare Quest

The Division for Health Sciences Diversity along with the VCU Schools of Allied Health, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing and Pharmacy partner with schools from Richmond Public Schools, Henrico County Schools, and Communities in Schools of Richmond to bring more than 500 middle school students to VCU for an afternoon of health career exploration.  The purpose of Healthcare Quest at VCU is to provide students with early exposure to multiple health science careers and encourage students to consider health careers in their future.

Middle school students travel through VCU’s Health Sciences Campus for two and a half hours learning about healthcare careers and engaging in hands-on activities with the VCU schools of Dentistry and Medicine for sixth-grade students, with VCU schools of Nursing and Pharmacy for seventh grade students, and with VCU school of Allied Health for eight grade students.
