The Virginia Commonwealth University Health Sciences Pipeline, also called the VCU Pipeline, features programs and initiatives intended to support students in their journey toward a health profession. With an array of programs and services from elementary school through the post-baccalaureate level, the VCU Pipeline strives to improve the academic and experiential profiles of participants from diverse backgrounds.

- Educate and excite students about careers in the health sciences
- Provide resources to strengthen students’ academic skills in math and science, as well as in verbal and written communication
- Ensure students make informed decisions while pursuing the health career of their choice
