Memorial Medical Center to Host Event on Surgical Careers

Memorial Medical Center will host an informational event on surgical careers at 8 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 2, at Baylis Day Surgery Center at the intersection of Rutledge and Miller streets.

“Behind the Scenes: Careers in Surgery” is designed to provide a seldom-seen view of a day in the life of registered nurses and technicians in the surgical field.

Participants will tour an operating room suite and get a hands-on interactive experience with surgical equipment. They will talk with members of the hospital’s operating room staff about educational and career development opportunities that could lead to becoming a member of Memorial’s trauma surgical services team.

“If you or someone you know is interested in a career that is unique and highly specialized within a strong team environment, we invite you to consider careers in surgery,” said Val Floyd, Memorial’s director of perioperative nursing.

Participants should register by July 25. Parking will be available in the Baylis parking garage. Check-in will be on the lower level of the Baylis Medical Building.
