Providence Ready Program

Attention: Providence Health & Services Oregon has made the decision to cancel all upcoming Surgical Viewings and Career Highlights out of precaution regarding the coronavirus until further notice. Please note other areas within Providence Ready (internships, College Way, MA Incumbent Scholars and Student Affiliations) are still ongoing. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Providence Ready (formerly known as Providence School Outreach) connects career seekers of all ages to health care careers through experiential learning. Our innovative and award winning program encourages career seekers to explore the many career opportunities that exist within health care. Not only does this help them make better-informed career decisions, but it often motivates and inspires them on their own career pathway.

For high school students, Providence Ready events can demonstrate relevancy to classroom learning and may be used to meet Oregon high school graduation requirements. We greatly appreciate the opportunity to partner with teachers, counselors and schools to bring health career exploration to Oregon and SW Washington students.
