Career opportunities for healthcare and behavioral health workers will rise significantly over the next decade.
Our Healthcare Sector gathers leaders and professionals from around our region to provide invaluable information to educators, and in return offers a sounding board for those educators, as we grow pathways in our K-20 school system. These pathways are designed to offer job seekers and school-age learners a range of experiences as they explore the Healthcare and Behavioral Health fields.
- Tours of schools and health industries
- Work-based learning opportunities (paid or unpaid) such as Work Experience, Internships, and On-the-Job Trainings
- Externships for teachers
- Use of platforms such as Oregon Connections and the Chief Science Officer Project to connect teachers with healthcare leaders
