About The HCPI Tool Kit
This toolkit was created by Diversity in Health Training Institute (DHTI) to provide program design elements and curricula from its Healthcare Career Pathways Initiative (HCPI) as well as best practices for working with immigrant youth and young adults (ages 15 to 30) interested in entering the US healthcare workforce. The toolkit is designed to answer the following guiding questions:
1. How do you effectively expose, advise, and/or motivate immigrant/refugee students to pursue health jobs/careers?
2. How do you academically, technically, and/or professionally prepare immigrant/refugee students to pursue health jobs/ careers?
Funding for the HCPI Tool Kit
This HCPI tool kit is a deliverable of DHTI’s Best Practice grant funded by the Alameda County Healthcare Pipeline Partnership (ACHPP), a program of the Health Care Services Agency. The purpose of ACHPP’s Best Practice Grants is to solidify, enhance, document, and/or evaluate “best practices” of ACHPP programs, with the goal of supporting internal and external replication. The intent is to capture “best practices” based on the knowledge, wisdom, experience, and perspective of ACHPP programs and facilitate future replication internally and/or externally.
