Clinic-Based Programs

The Office of Civic Education Initiatives' 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, and Family Health Centers.
 
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.

Interested students must apply and be accepted into the Clinic-Based Programs. The online application and updated program information for the summer of 2015 will go live on our site on November 1, 2014.
