Health Professions Opportunity: Pathway to Success in Healthcare (PSH) program will provide education and training in three healthcare tracks − Nursing, Emergency Medicine, and Medical Records/Health Information Technology (HIT) - that will pay well and are in high demand throughout the region. These pathways are designed as a career lattice that will allow program participants to enter, exit, and re-enter at each level outlined for each pathway. Students will be able to enter at various entry points, depending on their academic/developmental preparation and qualifications for the program. The PSH Program will enable students to successfully complete each training level by providing them with a package of wraparound services that could address multiple issues? academic, financial, and personal ? that can impede students from successfully completing college. CCAC will partner with the Three Rivers Workforce Investment Board (3RWIB), Pennsylvania CareerLink, Greater Pittsburgh Literacy Council (GPLC), Garfield Jubilee, Southwest PA Area Health Education Center (AHEC), Angels' Place, and Human Service Center Corporation-Mon Valley Providers, the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center (UPMC), Allegheny Health Network (AHN), and Allegheny County EMS Council and local four-year universities to implement this program.6
