Pipeline Programs

The VCU Pipeline endeavors to increase student diversity within each of the VCU health sciences schools with the purpose of creating a culturally competent health care workforce.

Pipeline Programs

The VCU Health Sciences Pipeline features programs and initiatives intended to support students in their journey toward a health profession. With an array of opportunities from middle school through the post-baccalaureate level, the VCU Pipeline strives to improve the academic and experiential profiles of participants from diverse backgrounds.

While each program has its own distinct goals and benefits for students, all of the programs aim to:

  • Educate and excite students about careers in the health sciences
  • Provide resources to strengthen students’ academic skills in math and science, as well as in verbal and written communication
  • Ensure students make informed decisions while pursuing the health career of their choice

All students considering applying to a VCU Pipeline program are encouraged to learn about the program and its specific benefits by researching this website and contacting program staff directly.
