Scrubs, Gloves & Microscopes


Students learning about Physical Therapy

Hands-on Experience

Scrubs, Gloves, & Microscopes (SGM) is series of "hands-on" health careers exploration sessions for high school students currently in grades 9 - 12. An SGM session gives you the opportunity to briefly experience life in a health profession, or health professional program. Each session is approx 3-4 hours in length. During each SGM session, you may:

  • Learn from professional school students and professionals in the field,
  • Participate in a hands-on experience,
  • Discover important next steps for pursing the featured career!

The full schedule of SGM sessions is found on the SGM Registration Page.  Students may sign up for 3 sessions (max) each academic year. These sessions take place on the University of Minnesota, Twin Cities campus. Please make sure to read through all the information found on the registration page, as well as our SGM FAQ page, before completing your registration.
