About the Youth Summer Program

Our students work on the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) campus in departments ranging from radiology, transport, materials management, research labs and more. The program is a paid 7-week, 30 hour-per-week job experience focused on professional development, healthcare career exposure and exploration, community health, and health equity.

High School Student Intern Summer 2022:

"Working at the Pathology Department was an amazing experience for me, and a great way to start an interest in clinical research and laboratory science. I was able to learn so much from Blood Typing, Staining Parasites, and doing Smears. It was an invaluable experience I will draw upon and solidified my interest in science and medicine."
