OGDENSBURG -- Each year, Claxton-Hepburn Medical Center partners with St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES Allied Health Program to allow students to shadow at the hospital.

During orientation, with help from the Ogdensburg Volunteer Rescue Squad, the students receive hands-on experience, such as a mock code (cardiac arrest) scenario, and look at lab specimens and x-rays.
