Organization:Excelencia in Education
Short Description:Finding Your Workforce: The Top 25 Institutions Graduating Latinos in Health Professions and Related Programs by Academic Level is the second brief in the Finding Your Workforce series. The analysis is part of a project to inform recruiters and employers of institutions graduating Latinos in key sectors and encourage them to do more to engage Latinos in their workforce.
Annotation:Finding Your Workforce: The Top 25 Institutions Graduating Latinos in Health Professions and Related Programs by Academic Level is the second brief in the Finding Your Workforce series. The analysis is part of a project to inform recruiters and employers of institutions graduating Latinos in key sectors and encourage them to do more to engage Latinos in their workforce. Recent findings shared in this brief include: Latinos in the healthcare workforce are more likely to be in lower paying support occupations—such as home health aides or nursing aides—than higher paying practitioner and technical occupations—such as physicians, surgeons, or dentists. In 2009-10, 70 percent of Latinos graduating in health fields and related programs earned certificates or associate degrees. At the undergraduate level, the top 25 institutions at each academic level conferring certificates or degrees to Latinos in 2009-10 were located in only six states—Texas, Florida, California, Arizona, Illinois, New Mexico—and Puerto Rico.
