Eve and Gene Black Summer Medical Career Program

1969-2020: The Summer Program still going strong at 50+!

1969-2020: 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 51st year in 2020. 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 students, their families, our dedicated Program Coordinators and the many presenters for their help in reinventing and reinvigorating the Summer Program, in this our 51st year.  We now look forward to forging ahead to 2021 and our 52nd annual Eve and Gene Black Summer Medical Career Program and the opportunity 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.
