South Texas AHEC Scholars Program

The five South Texas Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) are launching an AHEC Scholars program for students from various health related professions such as public health, medicine, dentistry, nursing, social work, dental hygiene, occupational therapy, physical therapy and community health workers.  The two-year program is designed to provide team-based interprofessional practice experience in community based organizations and clinical settings while students are still in school. Each year of the program AHEC Scholars will be expected to complete 40 hours of self-directed online learning modules focused on six core topic areas: Interprofessional Educations, Behavioral Health Integration, Social Determinants of Health, Cultural Competency, Practice Transformation and Current and Emerging Health Issues.  In addition to the online modules AHEC Scholars will complete 40 hours of team-based interprofessional practical experience each year.  The online application for the program closes on August 15, 2018.  For more information about the AHEC Scholars Program click here.
