Baystate Springfield Educational Partnership
Educating Tomorrow's Health Care Professionals
Baystate/Springfield Educational Partnership (BSEP) builds relationships with interested and committed high school 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 prioritizes high school students from Springfield. Students from surrounding communities are welcome to participate in any appropriate program only as capacity allows. If you are interested in participating, the first step is to attend an orientation.
New and returning students can register online.

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 at least one full exploration course (two exploration classes if the students are 11th grade or younger). If you are interested in this opportunity, please register for an Observation orientation.
The observation experiences also prioritize Springfield residents and include non-Springfield students based on capacity.
BSEP will not organize immediate or short-term observation experiences. No high school student should observe in the hospital without a registered host and appropriate clearance.
