The application for the Healthcare Interest Program at Denver Health is now available!

The Healthcare Interest Program (HIP) is a Denver Health pathway program that works to increase the success of college students seeking careers in healthcare. HIP supports the academic and professional development needs of its students through a combined approach including mentorship experiences, lectures, and workshops. HIP will expose participants to Denver Health Medical Center, an urban safety-net hospital that primarily serves under-resourced populations in Denver County. The program is specifically tailored to students with a connection to the mission of Denver Health and an intention to serve under-resourced communities.

The HIP Experience:

  • Complete 50+ hours of shadowing with a Denver Health provider in your field of interest
  • Obtain 1 credit hour per semester
  • Attend bi-weekly seminars with fellow health professions students
  • Network with healthcare providers across the Denver Health Hospital system
  • Gain an understanding of the healthcare needs of different populations across the Denver metropolitan area
  • Develop key professional skillsets to prepare for the next steps in your career journey

In completing the program, students should have a better understanding of working in the healthcare field, how general science concepts are used in healthcare settings, and a wealth of new resources to access as they apply to graduate programs.

Applicants must be starting their sophomore, junior, or senior year to be eligible to apply. Participants are required to enroll in HIP for both fall and spring semesters of the 2024-2025 academic year. For questions, please contact Vicky Rhine, HIP Director, at [email protected].
