Williams, Gerald D.
The Health Services Careers Program (HSCP) at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions (JHMI) in East Baltimore is a multi-purpose, inter-agency program designed to facilitate part-time employment, on-the-job training, and guidance in health occupations for economically disadvantaged high school students. Since 1966, HSCP has enrolled over 1300 individual students through a variety of projects and obtained work sites for the students at more than 100 different departmens within JHMI. Hundreds of JHMI faculty and staff have worked as work site supervisors over the years. HSCP student enrollees have accumulated over 200 employment years in JHMI at part-time jobs in the health field. Over 685,000 dollars in student stipends have been paid to enrollees. The purpose of this report is to summarize the results of a larger study that examines and evaluates the characteristics, development, and outcomes of HSCP for the years 1966 to 1974. The format of this summary report follows the main sections of the larger report: (1) background and study procedures; (2) literature review; (3) a profile of the 1966-1974 HSCP; (4) student evaluations of HSCP; and (5) an overall HSCP evaluation and discussion.
