Technical assistance and direction for the Health Professions Partnership Initiative

The Foundation's Health Professions Partnership Initiative, co-sponsored with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, was designed to address long-standing under-representation in the health professions of certain racial/ethnic groups, especially African Americans, Hispanics, and Native Americans.This grant to the Association of American Medical Colleges provides for technical assistance and direction of Project 3000 by 2000: Health Professions Partnership Initiative. This national competitive program will challenge academic health centers' professional schools to join with local high schools serving minority students and colleges in their communities to develop initiatives that will increase the number of minority students prepared to pursue careers in the health professions. Each five-year Foundation grant of up to $350,000 will be matched by the academic health center. In addition to the 14 sites to be supported by funds from the Foundation, the Association of American Medical Colleges plans to solicit funds from other sources so that an additional 7 sites will be funded--a 50 percent match.
