Position Description

Position: Student Coordinator

Program Goal & Description:

This nine week summer program starts June 10, 2019 and runs until August 16, 2019. This is a summer enrichment program for ten to twelve minority senior high school and/ college freshman and sophomore students interested in pursuing careers in the health field. Program students will engage in general career development activities (writing resumes, mock interviews), receive lectures on health related topics, lectures on time management, and on stress management, learn about what it means to apply to graduate or medical school, engage in personal reflection activities, increase their repertoire of academic skills (via lectures in creating power points, creating and conducting research projects, performing basic literature searches) and participate in health related field trips around the city,  In addition program students are required to present a major health related project at the end of the program.

Coordinator Job Description:

Coordinators will work in to mentor and oversee the program. The program runs five days a week Monday – Friday, 8am-5:00pm (a few sessions will run later)

During the first week coordinators will work closely with program leadership on administrative tasks; creating the six week program schedule, composing the teaching and mentoring activities, as well as  doing outreach with physicians and other health professionals to request their participation. Thereafter student coordinators will run the day to day activities of the program, network directly with  participating physicians, troubleshoot issues that arise with program leadership and collect evaluation data on all activities.

Formative evaluation of the program will occur on an ongoing basis through daily feedback forms and weekly self-reflection sessions, distributed and collected by coordinators. Summative feedback will occur at the end of the program through focus group activity, exit interviews and survey.

During the six weeks of the program coordinators will do the above and furthermore will participate in mentoring activities. A major component of the mentorship role involves advising program students on  a weekly basis as they work on creating their health project. Student coordinators will also have an opportunity to establish mentorship roles with senior physicians associated with the summer program.

In addition, if students are interested, the program leadership will work towards linking student coordinators with program students to continue longitudinal mentorship roles, under the guidance of program leadership.
