Health Career Collaborative

Constituency: K-12
Office: Health Career Collaborative

The Health Career Collaborative is a national program that aims to connect medical students with high school students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine. Stanford has established a partnership with East Palo Alto Academy to offer a local Health Career Collaborative program. There is a tested curriculum that is used to teach high school students about health and illness in their communities while also encouraging them to pursue higher education and gain exposure to careers in healthcare through interactions and mentorship with medical students (and other graduate students) and faculty.
