Science Internship Program

After much consideration and to protect the safety and well-being of our patients, caregivers and community, we have decided to cancel Cleveland Clinic’s K–12 Education summer experiences and internship programs. These programs are rewarding for students, schools and mentors, but we believe this decision is in the best interest of our community. We will continue to explore future student programs and share information once opportunities are available.


The Science Internship Program is a nine-week summer internship that, through hands-on learning opportunities, gives rising high school juniors and seniors the opportunity to work and learn alongside Cleveland Clinic caregivers in a variety of clinical fields and careers within healthcare(as providers and researchers) including medicine, nursing, laboratory medicine, physical therapy, public health, radiology, respiratory care and creative learning.
