Baystate Springfield Educational Partnership

Educating Tomorrow's Health Care Professionals 

Baystate/Springfield Educational Partnership (BSEP) builds relationships with interested and committed students from the City of Springfield and guides these students' experiences towards careers in health care.  The BSEP program offers a variety of hospital-based learning experiences that provide opportunities to explore different careers, engage in more comprehensive observation experiences, and prepare for potential internship or employment opportunities.  This is not an employment program and internship and employment opportunities are not a guaranteed program activity.

The BSEP Academy is primarily committed to the students of Springfield. Students from surrounding communities are welcome to participate in any appropriate academy program only as capacity allows.  If you are interested in participating, the first step is to attend an orientation.  To register, please click here and follow the instructions. 

Observation experiences for high school students

While the BSEP program does organize observation experiences as part of its program progression, it requires that students minimally participate in a full exploration course.  If you are interested in this opportunity, please register for an orientation (see link in previous paragraph).

BSEP will not organize immediate or short-term observation experiences.  For any students that have been able to organize their own observation, we will assist the student with complying with all medical and confidentiality clearance.  No high school student should observe in the hospital without a registered host and appropriate clearance.
