A Multi-tiered approach
The Northwest Native American Center of Excellence is dedicated to recruiting, training and retaining AIAN individuals in the health professions. We accomplish this utilizing several approaches, from youth outreach via the Northwest Portland Area Indian Health Board, We R Native and We Are Healers, to current or prospective medical students via our education programs and Wy'east Post Baccalaureate Pathway. We also offer support and resources to current native faculty and enrich our relationship with the native community through our Tribal Engagement team.
