Learn about health care careers with Cleveland Clinic


Each day at Cleveland Clinic, caregiver teams complete “rounds” to coordinate patient care. Educators can arrange to have their middle and high school students join teams of Cleveland Clinic caregivers for Connected Career Rounds. During these sessions, students learn about the career journeys that landed caregivers face-to-face with today’s most challenging health care issues.

Every Connected Career Rounds session will include a caregiver team discussing their career path and how each team member contributes to a specific health topic. Members of the Center for Youth and College Education team also will share information about how learners can pursue any of these careers if they are interested. Throughout each session, students will have opportunities to participate in activities before interacting directly with the caregivers. Information about educational opportunities at Cleveland Clinic (and its affiliates) will be provided during the session.

Connected Career Rounds is a free program provided by the Center for Youth and College Education. Educators can choose to have their students participate in any or all Connected Career Rounds sessions. All participants need to connect is a computer or laptop equipped with a webcam, microphone and speakers. Live sessions will usually occur on Tuesdays from 1-2 p.m. several times each month between October 2022 and March 2023. Session organizers also will record each session for students to view on demand in the classroom or at home.
