The Postbaccalaureate Pathways to Inclusive Health Care Program (PIHC) in the E.K. Shriver Center at the University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS) offers an exceptional training opportunity in supporting the health care needs of persons diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and/or an Intellectual/Developmental Disability (IDD). Because there are so few health care providers prepared to support the health care needs of this underserved population, successful graduates of the PIHC program will be uniquely and competitively positioned when applying for admission into a medical, dental, nursing or other health profession graduate school program.The Pathways to Inclusive Health Care program is a nine-month training program that provides recent graduates (referred to as “Scholars”) the opportunity to work as direct staff/paraprofessionals supporting youth and adults with ASD/IDD in practicum sites, such as day habilitation programs, Chapter 766 schools and integrated classrooms. Scholars will also be participating in a certificate program involving weekly seminars covering a range of disability-specific topics including the provision of health care services and supports within the context of best practices. A stipend of $15,000-18,000 is available. Upon completion of the program, Scholars will be awarded certificates from UMass Medical School.
