Mission Statement

Mission: To address the increasing demand for a linguistically and culturally diverse healthcare delivery system by assisting multicultural health professionals to enter or re-enter the United States healthcare workforce.

Description

We expand opportunities for self-sufficiency for low-income immigrants, refugees, and emerging populations by helping them become qualified and competent to work in one of the growing allied health careers.

The Diversity in Health Training Institute (DHTI) is a non-profit 501c(3) organization that assists ethnically and linguistically diverse populations who are interested in entering the healthcare workforce, or who have previous healthcare backgrounds or training, to enter, re-enter or improve their employment options in healthcare professions in Alameda and Contra Costa Counties.

We have partnered with The English Center in Oakland in a joint project called Health Career Pathways Project.

DHTI helps to integrate culturally and linguistically diverse health professionals into the healthcare workforce through careful case management, communication skills classes, referral to and support throughout training programs, job search and interviewing skills contextualized for health care.

Our goal is job success and retention for East Bay immigrants and refugees.
