Immersion Innovation is a ‘Triple Winner’ for a Triple Threat

Innovative immersion program focuses on healthcare workforce gaps today, and student career options tomorrow.

In this case, the ‘trifecta’ program launching this summer is the “Healthcare Exploration in Patient Care” program, an undergraduate immersion opportunity for University of Cincinnati students in partnership with the affiliated health system, UC Health.

The program has promise to become a national model due to widespread challenges in

  • Recruiting entry-level healthcare workers;
  • Tightening admissions standards to medical schools and other advanced study programs related to healthcare;
  • Need to retain healthcare professionals for the long term (so that their experience continues to serve patients).
According to Arthur M. Pancioli, MD, UC Health physician and the Richard C. Levy Chair of the Department of Emergency Medicine at the UC College of Medicine. “In a nutshell, these simultaneous challenges are actually one another’s solution and why we crafted this healthcare exploration pipeline to launch quickly, in fact, as a pilot this summer.”

Pancioli is the originator of the program’s concept, working in tandem with other administrators, faculty, healthcare providers and students to bring the program to the starting gate.
