Building Better Pathways to Health Professions Workforce Diversity: A Framework for Academic Health Centers

(2022) Pipeline and pathway programs developed at academic health centers provide critical support for aspiring learners from traditionally underserved populations to enter the health professions and careers in the biomedical sciences. This report, developed out of the AAHC Pipelines to Pathways Initiative, seeks to identify and share success factors for such programs. The Initiative was led by the AAHC Chief Academic Officers executive leadership group in partnership with the AAHC Sullivan Alliance. The report identifies insights arising from in-depth interviews of multiple practitioners who lead and manage pipeline and pathway programs in academic health centers. The report lays out specific findings, themes, and suggested actions based on those insights.
