Inland Health Professions Consortium (IHPC)

Mission Statement

The Inland Health Professions Coalition is a division of Reach Out working with industry partners, educators, and community stakeholders to address the need for a highly skilled and culturally competent health workforce in the Inland Southern California region.

The Need

The Inland Empire has the most severe doctor shortage in California, an issue which has resulted in the formation of the University of California, Riverside’s School of Medicine. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, there are on average 90 primary care physicians per 100,000 residents nationwide. In the Inland Empire, however, there are 34.5 primary care physicians per 100,000 residents, nearly two thirds less than the national average, according to data provided by the California Health Care Foundation.

Our Approach

The Inland Health Professions Coalition utilizes an innovative and diverse approach that incorporates work-based learning programs starting in junior high and continuing through college. To date, IHPC programs have impacted over 20,000 students by providing them with quality experiential learning and cultivating a local network of support. Additionally, Nexus workgroups link healthcare professionals with educators to create a seamless pipeline for careers in healthcare. Nexus workgroups are determined by region to address the unique needs of each region.
