School District Partnership with MCIS Inspires Careers
The School District of Marshfield appreciates the continued partnership with Marshfield Clinic Health System – specifically Marshfield Clinic Information Services (MCIS).
Throughout the school year, staff from MCIS came to Marshfield High School to talk to students about computer science and information technology (IT) careers.
On December 12, 2017, twenty-three students had the opportunity to tour the innovative environment at MCIS and learn more about careers in healthcare IT from dynamic presenters.
The benefit of this world-of-work experience for high school students includes exposure to a wide variety of career opportunities in the Marshfield community that students may pursue after graduation.
