Cleveland Clinic Program

Breakthrough Public Schools (BPS) is excited to announce an exciting program to introduce 7th and 8th-grade scholars to healthcare occupations, with the potential for long-term mentorship in the healthcare field of their choice. BPS is partnering with the Cleveland Clinic to provide two half-day programs that will introduce scholars to and provide hands-on activities in:





Physical Therapy (PT)

Radiation Tech

Physicians Assistants (PAs) 

Healthcare Administration

The first program will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm on Friday, December 9th. The second will take place from 1 pm to 4 pm on Friday, February 3rd. Activities will include IV placement, checking vitals, and more! The programming will take place at the Citizens Southeast Campus (15700 Lotus Dr, Cleveland, OH 44128). Transportation assistance will be provided to all scholars.

Following the two half-day programs interested scholars will have the opportunity to apply to attend a full-day healthcare expo on May 5th to learn more about healthcare fields, tour the Cleveland Clinic campus, participate in a showcase of simulated patient rooms, EMS, life flight, and other hands-on simulation activities like CPR, suturing, laparoscopic activities, and filling cavities. That day scholars will also be paired with mentors already working in their areas of interest. These mentors will follow scholars through high school and college to help them enter their careers of interest. They will also assist with obtaining internships, shadowing, volunteering, and research experience, as well as with application processes, personal statement reviews, and CV reviews.


This is an amazing opportunity for our scholars. If you and your scholar are interested in this opportunity please fill out the quick application below by November 18th. All scholars are welcome to apply, no matter if they are already interested in healthcare. This is a first come, first serve opportunity.

To learn more please attend the virtual info session on Tuesday, November 15th from 7 pm to 8 pm with Dr. Alicia Adams, a Cleveland Clinic surgeon.
