Health Professions Workforce Initiative

The Health Professions Workforce Initiative is a grant funded by The Colorado Trust. The Colorado AHECS and the University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences Center are working to encourage rural and underserved high school students to explore health profession careers. The AHECs are also administering a health care scholars program to graduate students in health professions education and training who opt to practice in rural or other underserved sites. Most significantly, this grant developed and continues to support a multidisciplinary curriculum and training program for rural track health professions students.

Interdisciplinary Training and Service  

Interdisciplinary Training and Service

Colorado is facing a shortage of medical professionals, especially in rural communities. The lack of rural healthcare causes some people to forgo preventive care and often immediate treatment for serious conditions. A program at the School of Medicine at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus aims to be a solution to that shortage, and the program has expanded to include the Schools of Dental Medicine and Pharmacy, thanks to a $2.4 million grant from Kaiser Permanente Colorado.
