During the junior and senior years, students will complete 80 hours of didactic training and 80 hours of team-based clinical/experiential training in rural and/or medically underserved settings. College of Pharmacy students can meet the curriculum requirements for AHEC Scholars through the existing College of Pharmacy curriculum and through supplemental didactic and/or experiential opportunities.
This program is designed to give students an experience in primary care, rural medicine or medically underserved populations.
Due to limited enrollment, students are encouraged to apply early in the fall semester of their third year of the PharmD program. After applying, students will be contacted by a Regional Programs recruiter, who will act as an AHEC Scholars advisor for orientation and program planning.
Please visit the Meet our Recruiters webpage to find your AHEC Scholars advisor.
For more information about applying to the AHEC Scholars program, email Stephen Attebery, Program Manager at email@example.com.
