There is a new rural health program coming out of the School of Medicine and Public Health called AHEC Scholars, a program for health professions students interested in supplementing their education by gaining additional knowledge and experience in rural and/or underserved urban settings. This is a longitudinal program with interdisciplinary curriculum to implement a defined set of clinical, didactic and community-based activities.
This is a two year program and each year includes 40 hours of experiential learning and 40 hours of online didactic curriculum (for a total of 160 hours over two years).
To apply, you will need a completed application form, an updated resume (1-page), an unofficial transcript, and two letters of recommendation. The AHEC Scholars program will grant you a certificate when you graduate from your healthcare career program.
Applications are ‘due’ November 30th, but they will be accepting applications submitted after the deadline, but submission is better sooner rather than later.
For more information on the program, visit the AHEC Scholars Program site
