Health Science Pipeline

The Health Science Pipeline Programs workgroup was formed in 2014 as part of the academic vision that encompasses Forward Thinking Education initiatives within Jefferson’s Blueprint for Strategic Action (BSA).  The team is comprised of academic and administrative leaders within the institution charged with:

Developing pathways along the continuum of learning to increase the interest and pool of diverse and qualified professionals through community outreach, workforce development, and the creation of strategic partnerships with emphasis on mentorship and recruitment of diverse populations.

Since 2014, the workgroup has focused on creating an inventory of all of the related pipeline program activities delivered by Jefferson faculty, staff and students in order to coordinate and expand these programs across the institution to ensure a more efficient and sustainable impact.
