The Physician Assistant Learner Support (PALS) program is a grant supported targeted intervention for high school students in rural, underserved and primarily minority Texas communities. The program goals are to attract African American and Hispanic students to PA careers and prepare them to enter training programs. While focused on the PA profession, the methodology is relevant to addressing disparities in workforce diversity in any health career.
