Health Career Pathways

The Stan State Health Career Pathways (SSHCP) program promotes student success and provides support to first year freshmen interested in health professions. Our services help students navigate the academic landscape with like-minded individuals. We ease the stress of course planning and class scheduling by pre-enrolling our students in designated Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics and Communication courses their first year (Fall and Spring). We offer personal and academic support through mentorship opportunities. Students are paired with an upper-class pre-health student mentor. All of our services are designed to help students stay in school and graduate successfully ready to pursue careers in health professions.
