Clinic-Based Programs

The Civic Education Department's Clinic-Based programs give Northeast Ohio middle and high school students the opportunity to learn and work alongside world-renowned caregivers at Cleveland Clinic’s Main Campus, Regional Hospitals, Family Health Centers, and Administrative Campuses.
 
Through their experiences in the Clinic-Based programs, students gain exposure to healthcare fields and careers, cultivate their 21st century skill set through hands-on learning opportunities, and find practical, real-world applications for their academic knowledge.

These programs promote learning in health and wellness, the arts, innovation, financial literacy, and more. Each program is formulated to inspire students to embrace a variety of disciplines as keys to success, and to foster skills that will help them become life-long learners.
 

Do you have questions on how to apply to one of our programs? If so, please join us for one of our "Destination: Application" sessions, which will give you the opportunity to meet with Civic Education staff members and ask them questions in person. Click here for the registration form!
