GNAHEC inspires youth to choose a career in the health professions with our health career camps, mentoring programs, college preparatory courses and more. We focus on recruiting more minority and disadvantaged youth into health careers because research and experience indicate they will be more likely to care for the medically underserved. As our population becomes more diverse, it is important that our health care workforce reflects that diversity.
Health Career Expeditions (RFP)
A major component of GNAHEC’s mission is to recruit middle school, high school, and college students, particularly those from rural or medically underserved areas, into various career opportunities available in health care. Special emphasis is placed on professions that provide primary health care, such as physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, family dentists, and other allied health professions.
The fundamental goal of GNAHEC’s Health Career Expeditions is to develop and implement opportunities that are designed to expose students to health careers, to assist these students in entering a career in health, and encourage them to work in underserved areas. This RFP is available to organizations interested in offering a health career expeditions project to recruit students into health careers.
