CHSU Announces Partnership with Fresno Unified School District (FUSD) to Support Students in Pursuing Post-Secondary Education in Health Care.

 

It’s never too early for middle school and high school students to start thinking about their career, that’s why CHSU has partnered with FUSD to provide opportunities to fast track highly qualified students through their College of Pharmacy program.

Currently, there is a shortage of medical professionals in our community, including doctors, pharmacists and nurses. Fresno Unified fully understands this challenge and hopes that by creating this partnership, students can attend a local University to advance their health care education, and then practice in the Central Valley to help alleviate the shortage of providers.

State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Tom Torlakson, says, “It is the idea of growing your own, having local students get excited about career pathways while they are in high school, then working with the community colleges and then from there getting into the university program and medical school program.”

To encourage students to pursue a career in pharmacy, CHSU has committed to reserve up to 20 seats in their College of Pharmacy for FUSD graduates. In addition to this, they have established a fast track 6 and 7 year pathway for high performing students to earn their Doctor of Pharmacy degree and plan to offer summer camps, classroom and clinical experiences, job shadowing and other life-long learning skills to ensure they are ready for college and their career.

“In a few short years we hope to boast about the Fresno Unified students who are now serving as pharmacists and physicians in our community,” said Florence Dunn, President of CHSU. With the support of FUSD’s motivated students and leadership team, this vision will become a reality!
