Many students at the Willamette Academy are already interested in working within healthcare profession. Touring students were shown the various kinds of jobs within a hospital, and even explored two of the hospital libraries and the hospital kitchen.

They learned the purpose of the public hospital library, which has resources for patients to learn about health and disease prevention, and in their visit to the hospital kitchen they had an important conversation about nutrition.
