Summer Health Assistant at Johns Hopkins Center for Talented Youth

Applicants must be 21 and over.

Why Work for the Center for Talented Youth (CTY)?

At CTY you will work with an exceptional group of students, make contacts and friendships with dynamic colleagues, and gain valuable experience in a rigorous academic community. CTY has consistently been named as one of the top internships in leading publications. They have a network of past employees now working in positions ranging from heads of school to deans of students to university professors.

The starting salary for instructors ranges from $2,400-$3,000 per 3-week session, depending on education and experience. Teaching assistants earn $1,200 per 3-week session, and residential assistants earn $1,400 per 3-week session. Salaries for administrators vary by position. Room and board are provided at residential sites.

Working closely with the site nurse and site director, health assistants (HAs) participate in the day-to-day operation of the site health office, keep track of students’ medications and medical appointments, confer with parents, and act as a liaison with nearby medical professionals. HAs may also be asked to provide support to administrative and other staff. HAs are not responsible for providing medical care to students other than basic first aid. The HA position requires a great deal of flexibility since demands on time can vary from day to day. Duties and schedules may vary from site to site. At residential sites only, HAs also accompany students on emergency room or physician visits. Because driving site rental vehicles is a job requirement at residential sites, HAs hired for those sites must be at least 21 and have good driving records.
