Inspiring today's students to become tomorrow's healthcare workforce

get involved

Pipeline. Our most long-range and ambitious mission is to increase the health workforce pipeline in Tennessee through education and experiences. We are dedicated to inspiring students and support education as the solution to workforce shortages.


Consider this.  Rising ninth graders right now will be entering medical school beginning in 2026 and starting to practice medicine in 2033. That will be here before we know it.

Don't ask why.  Ask how can I help?

We offer knowledge and participatory experiences to help students shape their decision making. We give them financial awards to encourage them as they begin college. We put particular emphasis on reaching students from rural and disadvantaged areas of Tennessee.

What can you do?

We are compelled to help. This is our pipeline. This is our future.
