5 Identified Gaps In Current Pathway Programs:
Lack of middle school involvement in career pathways.
Insufficient pathway marketing which would allow students, parents, and businesses to meaningfully collaborate, strengthen, and help develop these programs.
Inadequate connections between elementary, middle schools and community colleges to create seamless healthcare pipelines.
Lack of student awareness around lesser known, high demand health professions in the Inland Region.
Lack of connection between healthcare pipeline students and area employers resulting in a need for work-based learning opportunities
