Maternal and Child Health Pipeline Training Program
Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the Maternal and Child Health Pipeline Training Program (MCHPTP) at Alabama State University (ASU). Consistent with the purpose of the Maternal and Child Health Pipeline Training Program, ASU proposes to implement a project that will promote the development of a culturally diverse and representative health care workforce by recruiting minority applicants and training students from disadvantaged backgrounds into maternal and child health professions.
The MCH Pipeline Training Program is structured to expose freshmen, sophomores, juniors, and seniors to a series of activities designed to introduce them to career choices in health or health-related professions which serve maternal and child health populations. This training program focuses on four major themes: Academic Skills Acquisition, Career Development/Exploration, Leadership Development, and Cultural Competency.
