Each year, Brigham and Women’s Faulkner Hospital’s Community Health and Wellness Department coordinates a summer jobs program that has a lasting impact on both the hospital and the students. By working with the Boston Private Industry Council, BWFH is able to give local high school students the opportunity to learn about careers in the healthcare industry. The Summer Jobs Program lets students gain practical experience in a wide variety of positions, both clinical and non-clinical. This summer, eight students from West Roxbury Academy and Tech Boston Academy are participating in the program.
“This program allows young students an opportunity to pursue positions in healthcare that may not have otherwise been options for them,” says Tracy Sylven, Director of Community Health and Wellness.
