Scrubs, Gloves & Microscopes
Scrubs, Gloves & Microscopes (SGM) is a “hands-on” health career exploration opportunity for high school students currently in grades 9-12. SGM gives you the opportunity to briefly experience life in a health profession. Each program is about 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, and
- discover important next steps for pursuing the featured career.

Group Application Steps
The Health Careers Center will occasionally arrange group visits (calendar-permitting). Programs are fee-based and can be arranged for a ½ day or full day experience. High school classes, hospital-based youth programs, medical explorer groups, and other interested parties can make arrangements to have a health careers exploration experience coordinated by the Health Careers Center at the University of Minnesota. All programming options are contingent upon the availability of our University Academic Health Center partners and final programming decisions are at the discretion of the Health Careers Center.
Groups must be between 25-30 students, with 30 students being the maximum. Please allow at least 4 months planning time to coordinate arrangements for your trip. For more information contact Laura Fyfe at email@example.com or call 612-624-6767.
