MARQUETTE, Mich. (WLUC) – Students got the chance to learn more about what it takes to become a physical therapist Wednesday night. Through the Boy Scouts of America’s Medical Exploring Program, students aged 14 to 20 can meet monthly with Fran Finley, the Regional Vice President of Physicians Services for U.P. Health System and explore different careers in the medical field. The students were at U.P. Health and Rehab’s Marquette clinic Wednesday, learning about the necessary schooling and skills needed to become a physical therapist.
“Our hope of course is that we generate interest for these young folks to pursue a health career,” said Finley. “These will be our future caregivers and so we have a vested interest in it of course, but it’s an exciting time too.”
