Our Mission

ExploreHealthCareers.org is a free, multi-disciplinary, interactive health careers website designed to explain the array of health professions and provide easy access to students seeking information about health careers. This website is a joint initiative involving national foundations, professional associations, health career advisors, educational institutions, and college students.

Our mission is to help solve two urgent problems in American health care: the under-representation of minorities in the workforce, and the lack of health professionals in medically underserved communities. We hope to address these problems by helping more of today's students become the health professionals of tomorrow.

ExploreHealthCareers.org gives students a reliable, and comprehensive source of accurate, up-to-date information about the health professions. This includes information on and links to health-related education/training programs, financial aid resources, specialized learning opportunities, and current issues in health care.

By helping as many students as possible find a health career that suits them, we hope to help build a stronger health workforce. The health professionals of tomorrow will be highly skilled, motivated, and as diverse as the patients they serve.

They'll also be committed to making our country’s health care system first-rate, and equally accessible to everyone in this nation. And we mean everyone.
