Last week marked the inaugural kickoff of one of our newest and most exciting Healthcare Workforce Innovation initiatives, known as Tap HC.

The group of 21 sophomores, juniors, and seniors representing 17 schools from across the region met at Brookwood Retirement Community in Blue Ash for their inaugural meeting. Scroll down to view the 2018 roster.

Expanding upon the already-successful Tap MD program allowing area high school students who are interested in physician careers to “tap” into their potential, Tap HC takes it a step further to give students an opportunity to explore a wide variety of careers in health and healthcare.

Tap HC and Tap MD students commit to a one-year program involving monthly experiences at a variety of health and healthcare delivery sites throughout the Tristate area. Students are expected and encouraged to attend each month due to the unique nature of every experience, with the understanding that academics and pre-planned commitments should take priority. At each monthly event, they are able to talk with professionals in their field(s) of interest, ask questions, handle equipment and instruments relevant to the job, and even view certain medical procedures as appropriate.
