Summer Intensive Program

The Summer Intensive Program, geared toward high school students ages 16 years and over and early undergraduate students, offers a unique professional development opportunity for those interested in learning more about the healthcare field. Volunteers will have the opportunity to participate in a service project to benefit Lurie Children’s patients, a behind-the-scenes tour of the hospital, a career panel discussion and an interactive patient/family experience discussion.

Those who are selected may participate in one or both of two service/education days (exact dates TBD). 

To have their applications be considered, volunteers must meet the following requirements:

  • Must be at least 16 years old by June 1, 2020, to apply
  • Must submit application between February 1– March 6, 2020
  • Must be able to commit to at least one of the two service/education days

Applications for the 2020 Summer Intensive Program are open now through March 6. All applicants will be notified of their status by March 16, 2020.
