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.

In the setting of the current Covid-19 pandemic, for now the LAPS summer program is going forward with our selection process of applicants.  Once the process is complete, we will inform all applicants as to whether they have been selected or not.  At this time we haven’t made any decisions about canceling or postponing sites.  We will be actively evaluating the status of the program as events unfold and will be updating applicants as decisions are made.

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.
