6 6 A Success Story: BWH Student Success Jobs Partnership (SSJP) Program Ive seen a lot…Ive gotten to see how the department responds to trauma from beginning to end. Its confirmed that I really do want to be a surgeon. -Melissa Rocha In 2006, homeless and living in a shelter with her mom and brother Participated in BWH Student Success Jobs Partnership Program in high school at Health Careers Academy In spring of 2009, class valedictorian and 1 of 10 students accepted to 8 year BS/MD Early Medical Scholars Program at University of Rochester

7 7 A Success Story: Healthcare Training and Employment Program (HTEP) The program was a huge help while I was attending college. I knew I wanted to be in health care, but I hadn't made a decision. At a time when I was scared and confused, this program gave me the opportunity to work in health care and become familiar with the environment. This encouraged me to take a step further and continue my education in health care, which is why I am now taking prerequisites for the nursing program." -Tyeshea Clarke 2004 Participated in HTEP Moved out of shelter into subsidized house Offered a position in the OR after graduation from HTEP Obtained Sterile Processing Tech Certificate and position Interned in a Partners OR 2009 Taking pre- requisite courses for a nursing program

8 8 A Success Story: Clinical Leadership Collaboration Nursing Initiative (CLC) The Hausman Fellowship and the CLC have opened up so many opportunities for me. My good G.P.A. in college got me noticed, but every day I am out to prove that they chose the right person. I am the right person, and I am so happy that I am working here. I wouldnt want to be anywhere else. - Alexis Seggalye, R.N. Accepted into CLC in 2006 Shadowed nurses prior to her senior year Developed passion to work in a cardiac unit Received MGH Hausman Nursing Fellowship for Minority Student Nurses summer after junior year Hired as a cardiac nurse in May 2009

9 9 A Success Story: Radiology Loan Forgiveness Program I am so glad that I stuck around. In high school some of my friends worked in a law office making $10/hour. I was making $6.25/hour working 15 hours a week – less than $100 a week. Even though my friends made more money, Im so happy I stuck with the programs. Today, many of those friends arent doing so well, and they dont have the opportunities that I have. Going through the programs and working at MGH have had a positive impact on my life. I am very, very grateful to Patty and MJ Ryan and all the people who encouraged me and helped me. I dont know where I would be right now if I didnt go through these programs. I am blessed. -Jerry Jones Pro Tech High School Student Partners Radiology Scholarship / Loan Forgiveness Recipient Graduated BHCC RT Program and Passed National RT Registry Hired into MGH Radiology as a Technologist Promoted to MGH Weekend ED Radiology Supervisor Cross trained at MGH in CT Passed National CT Registry Hired as MGH CT Tech
