Madison Ranalli, a Walhalla High School junior and participant in the PLTW (Project Lead the Way) Biomedical Sciences program at Hamilton Career Center, was recently accepted into the Tier I MedEx Academy with the Greenville Hospital System (GHS). She is one of only 25 high school juniors accepted throughout the entire state of South Carolina.
Madison will travel to GHS for four weeks this summer to explore health care topics through simulations, lectures, workshops, research and community service. Madison's goals include attending medical school one day and this experience will be an important step in that direction.
The MedEx program was created by the Greenville Hospital System to address the critical shortage of health care professionals by creating a pipeline of promising high school and university students.
