Health Professionals Education
Support and training for our future providers of care
OHSI is dedicated to training our future healthcare professionals and leaders. As part of this mission, we sponsor nursing and allied health training programs in areas such as pharmacy and radiology. Our involvement provides real-world experience that is intended to prepare students from diverse backgrounds for their chosen medical careers.
Other examples of health professionals education support provided by OHSI takes the form of scholarships and mentorships for high school students interested in a health career. The system has provided more than $150,000 in scholarships to area high school students over the past 20 years. And, through a partnership with the Olathe School District the Bridging Education and Medicine (BEAM) program has provided hundreds of students with access to mentors, shadowing opportunities, and hands-on learning.
