Lasallian Scholars Institute Junior Selected for Prestigious TAP MD Medical Program.

Joey Amend, Class of 2016, was selected by Cincinnati MD jobs as one of 41 local high school juniors to be accepted into the TAP MD program.  The program is designed to help exceptionally talented high school students “tap” into their potential to fulfill careers in medicine.  The program began in 2011 through the Greater Cincinnati Health Council. The program begins in January and lasts one year, allowing the high school students to explore potential careers in healthcare through observation and hands-on activities. Students visit area healthcare facilities throughout the year to watch live procedures, including surgeries and MRIs. They are even invited to try their hand at some minor tests and practice other procedures on dummies.

Medical partners for the program include organizations such as Christ Hospital, Cincinnati Children’s Center for Simulation and Research, TriHealth, UC Health and the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.

Just over 100 students have been selected for the program since 2011.  In order for students to be selected, they must exhibit strong academic skills and have a minimum ACT score of 29 or SAT score of 1300.  Students must also exhibit high motivation to succeed, dependable behavior and a positive attitude.

Amend ranks 7th out of 183 in his class, with a weighted GPA of 4.16.  His awards include Academic All Star, Honor Roll, French Academic Achievement, and Lancer Scholastic All-star Award.  Joey has over 75 hours of community service with various agencies such as Santa Maria Child Mentor and tutoring at North Elementary.

“The LSI seminars gave me first-hand experience to see the education and training that was needed for different medical fields.  It grounded my interest in the field of neuroscience,” says Amend.  “Through the TAP MD program, I will be able to build on my interest in medicine and surgery.”

“Joey has really taken advantage of the LSI experiential-based learning opportunities,” says Mike Holman, Director of the Lasallian Scholars Institute.  “He is highly motivated and we are excited to see him gain such recognition through his acceptance into this program.”

The Lasallian Scholars Institute is a four-year program that adds an unprecedented learning experience to the already rigorous academics of honors-level students by providing extensive career and college pathway exposure through experiential, company-sponsored and college-facilitated learning. It is designed specifically to provide real-world opportunities for top-tier, motivated students by forming industry partnerships in the fields of Engineering, Global Business, Healthcare, and Information Management and Technology as well as other professional areas. Students learn in-depth career information, inside information about Cincinnati-based employers, and connect with and learn from some of the most qualified individuals in specific industries.
