Future doctors Margarita Ruiz, left, and Karissa Mendez, both Sierra MIddle School students, had an interesting morning with their newly casted arms (for demonstration purposes) at Kaiser Permanente's Hippocrates Circle Program for students who are possibly interested in becoming doctors.

Students in seventh and eighth grade who are interested in becoming physicians or working in the medical field learned a bit about what it takes Saturday.

They were invited to Kaiser Permanente's Hippocrates Circle Program at the Chester Avenue Medical Office Building to hear from doctors, medical students and others about their roles in health care.

They even had a chance to see what it's like to apply a cast.

Californian photographer Casey Christie shares these images from the morning.
