Vituity Cares Mentorship Program

Inspiring and supporting students from underrepresented backgrounds in their path to becoming healthcare professionals

The Problem

Currently, racial and ethnic minorities are underrepresented in the healthcare workforce. The lack of diversity contributes to racial and ethnic disparities in health outcomes.

The Solution

Vituity Cares partners with local schools to enroll students who are from underrepresented backgrounds and are interested in healthcare. Empowering these students opens doors to a more diverse future healthcare workforce where these future leaders and providers will ensure better access to quality care for underserved patients.


Develop Skills

Entees benefit from exposure to diverse healthcare professions, academic support, interpersonal and professional skills education and self – esteem and self – confidence development.

Individualized Support

Develop and improve skill-set and knowledge of those students interested in healthcare careers through 1:1 personal and professional mentoring, networking opportunities, group educational sessions, and job shadowing.

Education Series

The mentorship cohort meets once a month to learn about topics from a diverse group of clinicians and other health professionals. These sessions consist of panel discussions, presentations, and workshops that support the mentees to achieve their next steps in their academic and/or career journey.
