This past March, a Junior at New Hope-Solebury High School, Austin Maloney, was selected to engage in the University of Pittsburgh Health Career Academy. Previously known as the Pennsylvania Governor’s School for Health Care, Maloney was one of 110 driven students chosen from across the nation to participate in this year’s residential program.
“I feel very honored to be one of the 110 out of thousands of applicants chosen to participate. I want to use this opportunity to learn more about medicine and specifically pediatrics because that is what I want to do later in life,” said Maloney.
The University of Pittsburgh Health Career Academy is one of the most highly advanced and well known academic medical centers in the country. Maloney will have the chance to connect with highly experienced individuals who have years of experience and research on topics relating to health policy.
“There are lots of courses that involve leadership and overcoming adversity which I would love to do. There will be lectures from doctors and other notable people throughout my time at Pittsburgh,” added Maloney.The camp will be held from June 22 to July 19 as Austin Maloney plans to take his dreams of medicine to the next level.
