Penn State Health and Penn State College of Medicine, based in Hershey, PA, is committed to implementing programs that will increase the available population of diverse medical professionals that pursue their medical education at the Penn State College of Medicine, and ultimately pursue careers in medicine. The Program Director for Diversity Pipeline Programs, within the Office for Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, is the lead professional for working with school districts, colleges and universities, and current medical students and physicians, to design and implement measurable outreach/pipeline programs for diverse kindergarten through undergraduate senior students who are interested in health professions, particularly careers in medicine.
