Central High School
UofL Health wants to inspire future health care workers. To do this, we’re partnering with Central High School’s pre-medical magnet program. Together, with JCPS, our physicians, nurses and other medical professionals are helping shape the curriculum. Students have the opportunity to volunteer in our facilities for firsthand experience in various medical careers.
Pulse of Surgery
For more than 10 years, UofL Health – Jewish Hospital has partnered with the Kentucky Science Center to broadcast heart surgeries into schools across Kentucky and southern Indiana. More than 50 schools take part in this educational experience, including Central and Shawnee high schools. Students don’t just watch the surgery, they also interact with medical professionals during the surgery.
UofL Health continues to actively recruit more providers, with a particular emphasis on primary care.
This outreach program is focused on building stronger bridges between the Louisville health care community and our city’s youth most impacted by gun violence. Our goal is to introduce more youth to the field of medicine while helping them navigate through the emotional trauma that stems from the increasing violence currently plaguing their communities.
