Providing educators with resources to connect their students to careers in healthcare

How The Health Collaborative works with schools

Workforce Innovation at The Health Collaborative has compiled numerous resources and best practices for educators to help their students explore the wide variety of available in-demand healthcare careers.

We also convene a monthly meeting of solution-oriented, healthcare education partners, committed to building better pathways into healthcare professions. We invite you to join this Healthcare Pathway Partners initiative as we create even more events, programs, and resources that support educators and their students.

Dual enrollment and early college credit opportunities offer a number of benefits for students, including decreasing the time and costs of attending post-secondary programs and enabling students to earn higher wages upon graduating high school. This is a game changer for most students, including first-generation college students and those experiencing financial concerns. Visit Early College Credit Opportunities for more information.
