The VCU Division for Health Sciences Diversity oversees the VCU Health Sciences Pipeline, which is comprised of our faculty and staff, program partners and most importantly our students, the Pipeline alumni. Together we are breaking health science education barriers, fostering student success and diversifying the health care workforce.
The mission of VCU's Division for Health Sciences Diversity is to diversify the health care workforce through pipeline programs and initiatives.
We are committed to assisting underrepresented minority (URM) students (i.e., racial/ethnic minorities, low socioeconomic status, first-generation, rural, medically under-served communities, etc.) in their interest to pursue careers related to the health sciences.
By offering a vast array of Pipeline programs, we intend to:
- Encourage students to explore career opportunities within the profession of health care,
- Provide students with access to academic and social resources that contribute to their success in preparation for health professions/graduate school admissions, and
- Connect students with a network of health care providers and community partners who support our mission
The Division for Health Sciences Diversity is strategically positioned within the Office of the Vice President for Health Sciences on the VCU Health Campus.
