Young Innovators Healthcare Fellowship

Design solutions for today’s healthcare challenges

A new summer opportunity for Pittsburgh-area high school students

The Young Innovators Healthcare Fellowship is an eight-week experience for high schoolers in the Pittsburgh region to explore healthcare careers and design technology solutions to a current healthcare problem.

This fellowship - hosted by Liftoff PGH and the Jewish Healthcare Foundation - provides students with a collaborative and creative environment to:

  • Gain entrepreneurial, solution-oriented thinking skills
  • Engage with young professional mentors to learn about diverse careers in health
  • Learn about the role of technology & innovation in rethinking health care
  • Collaborate with peers to design an innovative solution

The inaugural program will be virtual and run for eight weeks – from Thursday, June 17th to Thursday, August 5th. The fellowship is at no cost to students.

Students interested in physical and mental health, STEM/STEAM, technology and innovation, and those looking to boost their resume will also be able to highlight their participation in the fellowship with a certificate of completion.
