on the ground
On The Ground
  • Colorado already has existing capacity and infrastructure to effect meaningful change to its health education and career pipeline.
  • In 2008 there were 39 programs supporting 84 separate initiatives (CHI, 2008).
  • Programs touched on necessary aspects of the pipeline including exploration and exposure health careers, loan repayment, scholarships, workforce diversity, leadership and career advancement.
challenges
Challenges
  • Difficult to ascertain exact number of organizations supporting the pipeline at any given time
  • Difficult to measure the degree of impact on the primary care workforce for pipeline programs that are short-lived
  • Lack of sustainability for health education and career pipeline initiatives is a major barrier to building momentum in workforce development
emerging themes

  • Academic advising at secondary and post-secondary education levels
  • Lack of collaboration across organizations and programs supporting the pipeline
  • Multiple web-based applications and portals for entry into the pipeline
  • Lack of evaluation among existing workforce initiatives

  • Collaboration guided by an interagency advisory committee
  • Address known gaps and challenges, including academic advising and workforce diversity
  • Prioritize evaluation among pipeline programs, in order to eventually ascertain total impact on CO’s primary care workforce
  • Student/participant tracking
