Sponsored health-scholar cohort programs support underrepresented students pursuing health career fields as the Health Institute prepares employers to attract and retain diverse staff.
Health Scholars Programs are unique wraparound support services to ensure our students transition from the classroom into meaningful careers in Colorado’s health care industry.
Students become culturally responsive practitioners through professional and personal development opportunities of study, research, volunteering and shadowing.
Stipends and scholarships are also available to help students focus on their education more than their bills.

MSU Denver was the only school willing to help me accomplish my goal of becoming a physician despite my legal status. The staff, faculty and mentors have supported my aspirations more than anyone else in my life. I truly owe my success to MSU Denver. Other institutions talk about diversity and inclusion, but MSU Denver shows it through action.
Integrative Health Care ('22)
I just accepted a position with DaVita as a patient-care technician. The connection and confidence I got from the Healthcare Interest Program (HIP) is directly responsible for that. My end goal is to become a nurse practitioner or a physician assistant, and this is a huge step.
