Abstract

Grand Valley State University (GVSU) understands the need to: increase the number of minorities graduating from health professions majors, provide support to aid in long-term student success, and improve the probability that minority students gain employment in health-related careers. Consequently, GVSU has collaborated with the Grand Rapids African American Health Institute (GRAAHI) to design and implement a healthcare mentorship program. This program helps to ensure the successful transition between college classroom and healthcare working environment by matching participating students with area health care professionals.
