Priority 3: Expand Arizona’s Healthcare Workforce

We strive to develop and expand Arizona’s healthcare workforce by investing in healthcare workers of the future and increasing opportunities for them. Grant proposals should support one or more of the following goals:

  • Guide and recruit students to healthcare careers, particularly in areas with shortages.
  • Support scholarships and mentoring.
  • Facilitate the development of health career faculty positions.
  • Reduce career barriers within healthcare systems.
  • Grow and develop healthcare and dental education institutions and services.
