H2P Colleges Improve Equity for Students through Pathways to Results Process

by Heather L. Fox and Debra D. Bragg / Jul 20, 2015

Today at the Health Professions Pathways (H2P) Summit, teams from the nine colleges that make up the consortium are gathering in Cincinnati to reflect on and celebrate four years of working together to build rigorous healthcare pathways that support student achievement. OCCRL, the third party evaluator for H2P, is hosting the Summit in partnership with the H2P National Office. As part of the consortium’s sustainability efforts, each H2P college participated in the Pathways to Results (PTR) process that involves analysis of disaggregated data on student outcomes to identify and resolve equity gaps. Through PTR, teams have taken steps to improve equity and outcomes for their students in at least one program of study at their college. Their efforts are reflected in the posters that the teams will share at the Summit. OCCRL applauds the H2P colleges’ efforts to improve equity and outcomes for all healthcare students. Other items on the H2P Summit agenda include interactive discussions about evaluation results and lessons learned to scale reformed healthcare education and training to the community colleges throughout the United States.
