MedQuest 2019 will be held from June 16th-21st on the Eastern Oregon University campus in La Grande, OR. Students completing the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades may apply. Please note that preference is given to upperclassmen, students in NEOAHEC's 11-county region, and past applicants who were not formerly admitted. To be eligible to attend MedQuest, students must be current on all standard immunizations (Hepatitis B, MMR, Chickenpox, Tdap, etc.).


*Important Update: Please note that NEOAHEC recently decided to change the MedQuest check-in date from Monday, June 17th to the evening of Sunday, June 16th. We are excited to introduce this change to provide students with more time to become acclimated to their peers and surroundings before major camp activities begin on Monday morning.


Application Information:


Camp tuition is $400, which covers meals, housing, and all activities. This includes a $25 deposit that must be paid with a credit or debit card at the time of registration.


Acceptance to MedQuest is competitive. To help our staff select camp participants, we have included an essay portion in the application.
