Palomar Health


Partnership with Palomar Health

School-to-Career

The partnership with Palomar Health began with a principal's dream of providing learning opportunities in the "hospital of the future" for Del Lago Academy scholars.

Palomar Health and Del Lago Academy committed to a formal partnership for the 2014-2015 Academic School Year to engage Del Lago Academy’s entire student population (9th-12th grade) in the healthcare industry. The goals of the partnership are to:

  1. Provide opportunities for scholars to explore healthcare careers and concepts
  2. Build excitement around scholar’s areas of interest
  3. Engage scholars in their chosen career paths
  4. Offer experience opportunities for scholars at Palomar Health

Every year, Palomar Health staff work directly with about 80% of Del Lago Academy scholars through career presentations, expert presentations on current medical issues, internships, and much more! Employee participation brings school curriculum to life, enabling scholars to develop relevant career skills and build a positive self-concept.

“It still surprises me, even after working with these kids for the past few years, how awesome they are. These kids wanted to get as much out of this opportunity as possible...Their effort, involvement, attitude, respect, and politeness provided an excellent representation of both the school and the partnership program with Palomar Health.” – Brent Ansell, Del Lago Academy Partnership Supporter Since 2015
