Title: High School Pathways to College and Healthcare Careers


1
High School Pathways to College and Healthcare
Careers
  • CCCAOE
  • October 19, 2006
  • Natalie Ray, Project Director
  • Tech Prep/Career Pathway Transitions
  • Bob Yarris, Director
  • Regional Health Occupations Resource Center
    (RHORC)
  • Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District
  • San Diego County

2
Healthcare Workforce Crisis
  • Demand exceeds supply
  • Gap exacerbated baby boomers demand for services
    and retiring workforce
  • From 2004 to 2010 California employment in the
    healthcare sector is expected to grow between 23
    and 37
  • Greatest projected growth RN, LVN, nursing aides
    and orderlies, dental assistants and hygienists,
    physical therapists, and radiological
    technologists

3
Challenges
  • Lack of awareness regarding career opportunities
  • Limited availability of science prerequisite
    courses (Anatomy Physiology, Microbiology)
  • High attrition rates in prerequisite courses
  • Long waiting lists
  • Availability/willingness of qualified faculty
  • Limited clinical placements
  • High attrition rates in licensure/training
    programs
  • Workforce retention

4
Solutions
  • Partners
  • Grossmont Union High School District
  • GUHSD Health Advisory Board
  • Regional Health Occupations Resource Center
    (RHORC)
  • Grossmont Healthcare District
  • Grossmont-Cuyamaca CCD

5
High School Health Career Pathways
  • Description A prescribed sequence of traditional
    academic courses that infuse health and medical
    content and applications into the curriculum over
    a three or four-year period.

6
Why?
  • Engage high school students in relevant and
    rigorous coursework
  • Provide opportunities for industry exposure
  • Improve high school science achievement
  • Increase success rates in health professions
    prerequisite courses (Anatomy Physiology,
    Microbiology)
  • Mitigate attrition rates in certificate and
    licensure programs
  • Address healthcare workforce crisis
  • Improve workforce retention

7
Example Pathway Model
  • Medical Biology
  • Healthcare Essentials/Medical Terminology
  • Physiology/Sports Medicine

8
Medical Biology???
  • Regular Biology class
  • Not a new course on your campus
  • Same course number (meet grad and a-g reqs)
  • Modify method of delivery and context, not
    content
  • Meet state standards utilizing health and medical
    applications

9
Benefits of Medical Biology
  • Utilize existing course to provide career-related
    and rigorous content
  • Provide background and foundation for ROP health
    pathway courses (only open to age 16)
  • Strengthen science performance through exciting
    and engaging applications
  • Provide an introduction to Anatomy Physiology
    concepts
  • Prepare students for higher level science courses
    in pathway (i.e. Physiology) and college

10
Example Academy Model
  • 9th grade Medical Biology and Science Special
    Study
  • 10th grade Medical PE and Fundamentals of
    Anatomy
  • Healthcare Essentials content woven between the
    two
  • 11th grade Medical Chemistry and Medical English
  • 12th grade Medical English and Medical Science
    course with internship

11
Funding
  • Grossmont Healthcare District Grant
  • Release period or stipend for Pathway Coordinator
    at each participating school
  • Field trips, curriculum writing, and classroom
    supplies
  • Tech Prep
  • Coordination

12
Health Pathway Site Coordinator Duties
  • Develop/expand health pathway
  • Increase the number of students in pathway
  • Standardize pathway courses
  • Schedule industry-related field trips and job
    shadows
  • Case management and follow-up of individual
    students
  • Partnering with industry members to develop
    curriculum
  • Stay current with industry practices and
    training, where applicable (i.e. CPR)
  • Recruitment
  • Connect with post-secondary programs
  • Grant reporting

13
Health Pathway Collaboration
  • Curriculum planning days
  • College instructor consultation
  • Middle school teacher involvement
  • Industry-related activities

14
Health-Career Exploration Summer Institute (HESI)
  • Four-week summer immersion program
  • Grossmont Union HSD summer school course (10
    credits)
  • Lecture component (4 days)
  • Rotations at two hospitals (6 days each)
  • Sharp Grossmont
  • Kaiser hospitals
  • Presentations to community

15

16
Regional Allied Health Science Initiative
(RAHSI)
  • Enhance linkages and CTE pathways between high
    schools and community colleges
  • Improve articulation/alignment and transitions
  • Build on existing 22 models and partnerships
  • Immediate implementation, high visibility, high
    impact
  • Include middle school partners

17
Goals of Grant
  • Increase high school students awareness of
    college allied health programs
  • Improve performance in science prerequisite
    courses
  • Improve transition and retention rates in allied
    health programs

18
Participants
  • 15 High schools (9 districts)
  • 6 Community colleges (5 districts)
  • ROP
  • Industry
  • Grossmont Healthcare District
  • Kaiser Permanente
  • Palomar-Pomerado Hospital District
  • Scripps Health
  • Sharp Healthcare/Grossmont Hospital

19
