Cincinnati Children’s also welcomes high school student volunteers in patient care areas every summer through the School’s Out Program. Teen volunteers help in areas such as activity centers and outpatient clinics in addition to providing clerical support in departments throughout the hospital, both at the main campus and at our neighborhood locations. We ask our summer volunteers, who must be at least 15 years old by June 1, to make a weekly commitment of two to three hours and plan to miss no more than two scheduled shifts over the course of the summer. Learn more about the School’s Out Program.
The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine has several summer programs for gifted high school juniors and seniors.

The UC College of Medicine Health Careers Exploration Program (HCARE) is for high school juniors and seniors interested in health careers. For more information on these programs and other opportunities at the University of Cincinnati, visit the Howard Hughes Medical Institute-sponsored Pathways to Health Careers programs website.
