HARRISONBURG -- High school students are having a chance to see what a college health care class looks like this week.
James Madison University hosted a camp that allows students to learn more about the medical field, which is a field that's expected to grow.
The "Careers in Health and Medicine Program" or "CHAMP" recruits high school students who are interested in a career in medicine. Fourteen students attended the program last year, and this year, 22 students will be in it.
The students hope to make a difference in a field that has a demand for more nurses and doctors.
“I want to be a physical therapist when I get older, so I thought it would be a really good idea to come and learn more about the body and learn more about science and health. I've really enjoyed it so far,” said Sidney Hamann, a Turner Ashby High School student.
On Tuesday, the students separated DNA from bedbugs. The week-long camp will give the students a chance to perform other health care techniques.
