SARANAC LAKE — Eight students from Tri-Lakes regional high schools are participating in the Adirondack Education Center’s New Vision Health Careers curriculum at Adirondack Medical Center in Saranac Lake this year.

The program offers high school seniors the opportunity to shadow health care professionals in a variety of clinical rotations, helping inform the students’ career decisions and preparing them for college success.

The New Vision program’s challenging college preparatory curriculum includes English, anatomy and physiology, medical terminology, government, economics and the history of health care, as well as current topics such as confidentiality, ethics, cultural diversity, human development, infection control and health care finance.
