OKLAHOMA CITY—It is no secret that some of the best jobs these days are in the medical field and will be for years to come.

Friday, about 600 students attended Mercy’s 11th annual Health Care Career Exploration Day.

They were able to receive hands-on experience doing “mock resuscitation” drills and other activities.

For many students, it was shocking to see how careers in medicine vary.
