The Healthcare+ Pathways® Program kicks off its fifth year on Monday, June 12, 2017. The program gives rising high school freshman from across Northeast Ohio the opportunity to spend two weeks learning from world-renowned healthcare professionals at Cleveland Clinic and educators from Cleveland School of Science and Medicine.

Designed to expand the involvement of groups that have been shown by the National Science Foundation to be underrepresented in biomedical sciences on a national basis, the Healthcare+ Pathways® Program gives students who are American Indian or Alaskan Native, Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, Native Hawaiian or Pacific Islander, underprivileged, or the first to attend college in their family the skill sets needed to think critically, problem-solve, communicate, and challenge their own learning to compete in a global world.

In addition to helping students build a strong foundation in research, science, and medicine, the program also introduces important topics like financial literacy and business management.

The 2017 Healthcare+ Pathways® Internship Program includes 15 rising high school freshmen from middle schools across Northeast Ohio.
