Health Career Pathways

Providing research and evaluation for health career pathways for youth and young adults.

In 2015, Alameda Health System (AHS) launched the Pipeline to Opportunities Project (POP), a workforce development initiative aimed at addressing the need for well-trained health professionals that reflect the local community served by AHS. Through POP, AHS will strengthen existing and develop new health career programs to prepare Oakland’s youth and young adults for healthcare careers, and create a new Health Professions Education and Training Center.
 
As POP’s research partner, SRI co-developed an evaluation logic model with AHS and will be conducting a formative evaluation to support successful implementation of POP. SRI is also working with AHS to building internal capacity to collect and use data for continuous improvement.
