On August 4, Civic Education marked the completion of its 2017 Clinic-Based Programs at the InterContinental Hotel and Conference Center Amphitheater on Cleveland Clinic's main campus. The event celebrated the graduates of the following Summer Internship Programs:

  • Healthcare+ Pathways®, which included 15 rising high school freshmen from middle schools across Northeast Ohio.
  • NEOREMA (Northeast Ohio Research Education Medicine Alliance,) which included 21 rising high school sophomores from across Northeast Ohio.
  • The Louis Stokes Workforce Readiness Program, which included 67 rising high school sophomores and juniors from Cleveland and East Cleveland.
  • The Science Internship Program, which included 78 rising high school juniors and seniors from across Northeast Ohio.

Each intern had his or her final poster project displayed at graduation, and a select group of students from each internship program were given the opportunity to present their work to an audience of their peers, parents and guardians, Cleveland Clinic caregivers and members of the community.
