Mission of the Program (SHPEP)

Health Education Leadership and Interprofessional Excellence (HELIX):

It is imperative that we diversify the healthcare workforce and develop learn based competencies in order to achieve a culture of health.  This innovative program will cultivate the successful interprofessional leaders of tomorrow who will have the knowledge, skills and attitude to impact the health and healthcare of our communities.  SHPEP reaffirms our continued commitment and involvement in pipeline initiatives; collectively our institutions will attain even greater diversity.  The program will also allow us to continue strengthening the academic portfolios of community and four year college students so that they are competitive candidates for health profession institutions.
