The VCU Pipeline endeavors to increase student diversity within each of the VCU health sciences schools with the purpose of creating a culturally competent health care workforce. 
It’s never too early to jump-start a student’s interest in science and health careers.  Middle school programs vary greatly and provide exposure to health careers, tutoring, and life-skill development. From Jump Rope to Stethoscope is a community outreach program offered through the VCU Health System Human Resources’ Office of Workforce Development and Strategy to introduce children to the health care field through a wide variety of experiences, including nursing camps, school career days, hospital tours and health care clubs.
