This is a summer program conducted Tuesdays through Thursdays for six weeks, commencing in June. Please see the application for the specific dates. On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, students are assigned to a department for mentoring and participation in work assignments. Thursdays are dedicated as educational days and provide students with training, tours, workshops and mock interview experiences. Students earn five academic credits upon completing the program.
Students will also complete a team project on a health care related topic which they present at a celebration luncheon upon the commencement of the program, to which the students’ families, mentors and community leaders are invited to attend.
For consideration, students must complete the online application located at cityofhope.org/careers by April 30. Students must be at least 16 years of age at the time the program begins, entering their junior or senior year in high school, and be in good academic standing. Students will be expected to adhere to attendance and dress code requirements and program regulations. Students will have to provide vaccination records and have a recent TB test. Due to the nature of this program, students are not able to also participate in a summer school program. Students are responsible for providing their own meals during the program.
