Student Pathways

About the Program

The Student Pathways Program offers 11th and 12th grade high school students who have an interest in a healthcare career a unique opportunity to take the first step in their professional life.

Participants in the program gain exposure to a wide variety of clinical and non-clinical healthcare careers. Through direct interaction with current Cleveland Clinic caregivers, students will explore the world of opportunity available to them in the healthcare field. This includes direct-to-employment positions, which can be available immediately after graduating high school.

Not only will participants learn about careers through virtual workshops and onsite observations, students will also receive skills training directly from our Talent Acquisition Team. Topics covered include:

  • Resume writing
  • Interview skills
  • Personal branding

Participation in this six-week education experience allows students to explore career possibilities while successfully preparing for their post-graduation journey.

Financial incentives are available for participants who successfully complete all Student Pathways Program requirements.

College Shadowing Experiences

College Shadowing Experiences

About the Program

CYCE’s college shadowing experiences help college students who are interested in shadowing a healthcare professional for a defined time. Our Shadowing Program allows students to gain visual and verbal experiences in either their field of study or another area of interest. Shadowing students can receive up to 1 week or 40 hours of shadowing within a year. Students are able to shadow three areas within that time frame. If a student is in need of required shadowing hours that exceeds 40 hours, accommodations may be granted upon review.

Please note, shadowing experiences are observational and do not include hands-on work with Cleveland Clinic patients or data.
