Thank you for your interest in MedQuest!


Our 2020 camp will be held from June 14th-19th on the Eastern Oregon University campus in La Grande, OR. Students completing the 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grades may apply. Preference is given to upperclassmen, students in NEOAHEC's 11-county region, and past applicants who were not formerly admitted. Due to exclusive shadowing opportunities in local healthcare clinics, students must be current on all standard immunizations (Hepatitis B, MMR, Chickenpox, Tdap, etc.).


MedQuest seeks to:

  • Deepen students' understanding of the healthcare field and the multitude of employment possibilities within it.
  • Help students find their passion in the health field by offering shadowing experiences and other real-world activities.
  • Facilitate networking opportunities with providers in Eastern Oregon.
  • Allow students to forge friendships with other high school students who have similar interests and goals.
  • Simulate the "college experience" by affording students the opportunity to reside in dormitories on the EOU campus.
