The City of Orlando has launched the Orlando Medical Careers Partnership Program with the help of education, medical and community partners. The program, focused on west Orlando, involves a comprehensive approach designed to “engage city residents, from elementary school through adulthood, by providing job opportunities and creating educational enhancements, while helping residents overcome barriers to success.” Highlights include science education at younger ages. Additionally, the program has a transportation component. Lynx will establish commuter service to connect its main station in downtown Orlando to Medical City in southeast Orlando, funded by $562,000 over two years from the city and state.
