The Allied Health Academy aims to increase the pipeline of underrepresented students into allied and other health career professions by supporting students through high school, community college, university, and graduate school. We do this by providing services and resources at each level through our partner organizations.
The Orange County Asian & Pacific Islander Community Alliance (OCAPICA) coordinates allied and other health career programming at the high school level and collaborates with Anaheim Union High School District to support students.
Here at the High School Allied Health Academy, it is our goal to spark our students’ interest in allied and other health careers. We provide academic advisement, college and career development workshops, interactions with guest speakers in allied and other health professions, and a variety of field trips. Students also have access to our HAPI-YEP After School Program, where they receive free tutoring, mentorship, snacks, and workshops centered around health, academics, and life skills.
We aim for students to use the program as a stepping stone in their academic journey and leadership development. Moving forward, we hope that they will become active leaders in creating a healthier community through education, engagement, and empowerment.
The Community College Allied Health Academy currently operates at Cypress College. Benefits to participating include:
The CSUF Allied Health Academy provides students with resources and services to explore careers, connect with their community, study better, and prepare for graduate school.
Allied Health Academy members who get into one of our partner graduate school programs can participate in a 4-week summer pre-matriculation program before they start graduate school.
