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
  • Cultural competency
  • Quality improvement
  • Practice transformation
  • Current and emerging health issues
Eligibility

AHEC Scholars will be selected from UAMS students, including medicine, pharmacy, physician assistant, public health, behavioral health, and nursing, among others.
