Health Care/ Medicine Summer Programs

Summer Programs for Students Interested in Health Care and Medicine

Below are links to summer opportunities that exist within our community and across the country.  Central York High School does not necessarily endorse any of these programs, as we often know only as much as appears on the program website.  We list them here simply to make students and families aware of the opportunities, so that you may investigate them further.

Please note that many of these programs require a significant cost to the student, so families are encouraged to research these programs thoroughly before deciding if the program is worth your expense.

Summer opportunities are listed on this page year-round for student planning purposes, so please be aware that deadlines may have passed for involvement in these programs for the upcoming summer.
