Building & Shaping the Health Workforce

How We Do It

UnitedHealth Group is helping build and shape the health workforce with initiatives that advance a diverse workforce, invest in the need for more data scientists, revitalize primary care and improve existing workforce capacity.

Building & Shaping the Health Workforce

Advancing a Diverse Workforce Through the Diverse Scholars Initiative

A diverse health workforce that reflects today’s society can deliver more personalized, culturally competent care.

The United Health Foundation Diverse Scholars Initiative works to create a more relevant health workforce, particularly in underserved communities, by increasing the number of primary care physicians who are equipped to deliver personalized, culturally competent care. Since the program launched in 2007, the United Health Foundation has funded nearly 3,000 scholarships for diverse undergraduate and graduate students. The Diverse Scholars Initiative also provides mentoring and internship programs, and an annual scholar forum in Washington, D.C.
