Health Career Collaborative

117 Crescent Ave, Burlingame, CA, 94010, US

Mentorship, health education, and health career pipeline for high schools students in underserved communities

Mission

The mission of the Health Career Collaborative is to support youth from underrepresented and underserved communities to: graduate from high school; pursue post-secondary education; gain health literacy and; develop interest in health careers

Vision
By supporting medical students and health professionals to implement the Health Career Collaborative program, we hope to create a pathway to health careers for youth from underrepresented and underserved communities. At the least, by facilitating mentor relationships between health professionals and youth, we hope to develop trust between health care institutions and underserved communities. We also believe that by increasing representation of underrepresented groups in health professions, we can begin to address the health disparities and racial bias that exists in healthcare.
