About the program
Each summer our Healthcare Immersion Program provides college students with a unique opportunity to explore various health careers close-up.
Whether you’re interested in becoming a nurse, a physician, a physician assistant, or a physical or occupational therapist, this program allows each student the chance to witness the unique aspects of each professional role.
Prerequisites for the program include an interest in a career in the medical field and one completed year of college education.
The cost of the program is $500 per student. Applicants may apply for a program scholarship based on financial need.
This year, our program coordinator will be Maggie Macy, an Oakland-based home health nurse and former HIP program coordinator and student.
We're the staff and volunteers at Jackson Orthopedic Foundation, committed to improving the lives of patients with musculoskeletal conditions through education, research and service.
