Studies show that the underrepresentation of racial, ethnic, LGBTQIA, low-income and first generation college students in the medical field is linked to negative health experiences for patients from these backgrounds. By contrast, patients benefit from interaction with medical professionals who share the same racial, cultural and linguistic norms.
Your gifts expand and create VCU Pipeline Programs, which address barriers faced by underrepresented students through exposure to health careers, academic support and experiential opportunities. These programs diversify the pool of students applying to health professional programs and ultimately entering careers in the health sciences.
VCU Pipeline Programs strive to create a health care workforce as diverse as the population it serves.
