AHEC SCHOLARS

 

 

STUDENTS & RESIDENTS IN

HEALTH CARE PROFESSIONS

 

WE ARE TAKING APPLICATIONS FOR

THE 2018 AHEC SCHOLARS PROGRAM!

 

 

 

 

For our post-secondary, health professions students, who are currently enrolled in a two-year

or longer degree or certification program, the Alabama Statewide AHEC Program is in the

development phase for an interdisciplinary program called AHEC Scholars.

 

East Central Alabama AHEC will launch the program in September 2018 for the following disciplines:

• Medical

• Nursing

• Social work or Pharmacy

 

The program offers curriculum designed for students to focus on six core topics that are critical for our future workforce:

• Interprofessional Education (IPE) or Team-Based Training

• Behavioral Health

• Social Determinants of Health

• Cultural Competency as part of Patient-Centered Care

• Practice Transformation

• Current and Emerging Health Issues

 

Participants will receive 40 hours of training (both clinical and didactic for a total of 80 hours) each year of the program and will interact with other AHEC scholars across Alabama.

 

The online classroom activities will utilize an online platform such as

• Google Classroom

• Kaizen game application

• Book of the Year Forum

 

Clinical Training experiences will be interprofessional with at least one other healthcare discipline in an effort to better prepare health professional students to enter the workforce as part of a team.
