About the Youth Summer Program

Traditionally, students worked on the Brigham and Women’s Hospital (BWH) campus in departments ranging from radiology, transport, materials management, research labs and more, which is not possible this year. As a result, the summer program has been transitioned to entirely remote. The program is now a creative 6-week, 30 hour-per-week job experience focused around professional development, healthcare career exposure and exploration, community health and social justice.

High School Student Intern Summer 2020: “I’ve learned a lot from myself and others on how we work differently when we are in different environment. I learned a lot. From financial literacy to career planning, we got to learn about different things that will benefit us in the future for our future careers. The thing that I liked the most about this internship is that we get to learn from different people in different fields and we got to see more of what it is like to work in that career field.”
