This year’s 2018 program will provide a five-week summer pathway opportunity for up to forty (40) Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) 9th - 12th graders. For the third year, HCSA’s ACHPP, in collaboration with OUSD, will serve as the anchor organization and will coordinate a meaningful work-based experiences that will emphasize project-based and experiential learning opportunities.
Various preceptors throughout HCSA’s departments including, Administrative/Indigent Health, Behavioral Health Care Services, Environmental Health, and Public Health will identify projects where interns can add value, receive exposure to service - based work in a health institution, and soft skills to assist in self-reflective activities for their individual development.
