Arkansas AHEC Scholars Program
The Arkansas AHEC Scholars Program is a multidisciplinary certificate program for certain health professions students that offers opportunities for hands-on training, experience in rural and underserved communities, and networking with other students and professionals.
This program requires up to a 2 year commitment and consists of classroom and/or online instruction and hands-on clinical training in addition to the regular coursework required by the degree program.
AHEC Scholars is a program of the National AHEC Organization that is implemented by local, statewide, and regional AHECs. Core topic areas covered in the curriculum include:
- Interprofessional education
- Behavioral health integration
- Social determinants of health
- Quality improvement
- Practice transformation
- Current and emerging health issues
AHEC Scholars will be selected from UAMS students enrolled in an approved health professions program, including medicine, pharmacy, and physician assistant programs, among others. Preference will be given to those who have demonstrated an interest in community-based primary care in rural and/or underserved areas of Arkansas.
This program is provided at no cost to participating scholars. Other benefits are described on the program website.
