The Community Health Ambassadors Internship Program (CHA) aims to empower students who are future doctors, by preparing them to serve as ambassadors of health and wellness.
Students who are Black/African American and who are post-baccalaureate, pre-med/college/university, or high school students who want to become physicians may apply.
The CHA Internship provides students with a framework to begin their journey towards becoming physicians. As a community-service-learning program, students will engage in skill building, medical school educational requirements, teamwork and presentations over a 5-week period.
The CHA orientation will be held tentatively on Wednesday evening, April 17, 2019 and then all other sessions will be held mostly on the weekends. The CHA Program will include sessions with doctors, faculty and medical students who will discuss:
Ambassadors will also be connected with physician/resident and medical student mentors. The program will culminate with the Ambassadors Intern teams presenting an important health topic using video or power point which will be 3 to 5 minutes long. These presentations will be uploaded to the Physicians Medical Forum website and YouTube Channel.
Parent authorization is required for all high school students. Students will be accepted to the CHA Internship Program based upon their motivations for becoming a physician and commitment to serving minority communities as well as the health and wellness of the community overall. Students who completed the Doctors On Board Pipeline Program will receive priority preference for this program.
