The Institute of Health Careers
A Healthcare S.T.E.M. Educational Paradigm
Partners in Healthcare
The vision for the Institute of Health Careers is to develop and administer a sophisticated health care studies preparatory program designed to adhere to a S.T.E.M. based learning and career building paradigm in Mississippi that meets the needs outlined in the Mississippi Economic Council's economic development guide for Mississippi entitled BLUEPRINT MISSISSIPPI. By introducing a proactive educational platform that embraces students early, students will be better prepared to acclimate to the courses of study required in the various health related clinical and business fields.
Preparing students through a comprehensive S.T.E.M. approach partnered with a robust leadership and disciplinary infrastructure ensures that students are truly prepared for the healthcare economy at every level. Whether it is care delivery, health IT, healthcare research or entrepreneurship and supply chain management, students will have the access and learn to speak the language long before they enter an institution of high learning. This is a priority given Mississippi's adamant focus on healthcare as an economic driver. The four major areas for the healthcare report revolve around these significant actions: Workforce Development, Quality of Life, Business Sustainability and the Creation of Economic Wealth none of which are applicable without education.
The IHC program is designed to graduate high school students with an Advanced Health Care Studies Diploma. This diploma would prepare students to enter the collegiate world with an academic infrastructure geared towards careers in the various health related fields including health delivery organizations, medical offices, long-term care facilities, insurance or payer organizations, medical product companies and government agencies. The program will also prepare those high school graduates who wish to pursue future post-graduate studies in fields such as health care services (medical, dental, nursing, pharmacy) and health care administration.
