Eve and Gene Black Summer Medical Career Program

1969-2019: The Summer Program still going strong at 50+!

1969-2019: The Summer Program still going strong at 50+!

The Los Angeles Pediatric Society established the Eve and Gene Black Summer Medical Career Program in 1969 and is proud to celebrate its 50th year in 2019. The purpose of the program is to encourage high school students to choose careers in the health professions.

The Los Angeles Pediatric Society thanks all of the applicants, their families and our Program Coordinators for their patience and ongoing commitment to the Summer Program, as we evaluated how best to proceed during the Covid-19 pandemic.  For the last 50 years, participation in the LAPS Summer Program has been an important experience for exceptional young people in Southern California interested in the world of medicine. And to continue that tradition, LAPS will be presenting the first-ever Pediatric Society Online Summer Program (PSOSP).  We look forward to forging ahead in this our 51st annual Eve and Gene Black Summer Medical Career Program and continuing to offer this life-changing experience to the next generation of medical professionals.

This program is best described as a medical mentor program. Under the supervision of a health care educator/medical facility coordinator, participants shadow various medical professionals (nurse, nutritionist, pharmacist, lab technician, physician and/or medical specialist etc.) who together provide a range of patient care services.

A stipend is available upon request for any student with financial need. Each participant will receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program and one $500 scholarship will be awarded. Funding is provided by contributions from individuals and groups. If you would to donate to this life changing program, please donate below.
