For Scholars in the Health Scholar and Junior Health Scholar Programs who would like additional leadership experience and professional development
Scholars must have completed at least one three-month rotation and be actively participating in the Health Scholar or Junior Health Scholar programs. Entry into Leaders is determined through a competitive application process.
The Leaders program is a professional development opportunity for Scholars enrolled in the Health Scholar and Junior Health Scholar programs. Leaders serve under the direction of the site manager to help the program run smoothly at their site. Leaders are involved in all aspects of program operations such as recruiting and training new Scholars, managing Scholars in a department, assisting with administrative tasks and leading community service projects. Leaders can grow and develop from coordinators into Executive Leaders who manage coordinators.
A Leaders’ role determines the relative commitment, with a higher commitment expected of Executive Leaders (directors and assistant directors) than coordinators. Weekend days are for training and recruitment activities.
|Role||Weekly Office Hours||Weekend Days Per Quarter|
|Coordinator||2 hours||3-4 half-days|
|Assistant Director||4 hours||3 full-days|
|Director||8 hours||6 full-days|
This program is available at all locations.
