We strengthen the pipeline for young men of color to pursue careers in the Allied Health and Medical fields.
The Urban Health Fellowship (UHF) is a health education and career exposure pipeline program held during the academic year for young men of color that are interested in allied health and medical field careers.
Throughout the program youth are exposed to opportunities to engage with health professionals in a variety of ways. Students can participate in tours to health organizations and college health departments and can learn more about the field in weekly sessions and through conducting community health research. Students will also receive support in identifying individual career pathways and internship placement in order make students competitive for 2-year, 4-year and vocational programs.
If you are interested in bringing UHF to your school please fill out a form here.
