Chicago AHEC Scholars Seeking Up-and-Coming Health Professionals

January 16, 2023

Apply today for our next cohort of AHEC Scholars!

Chicago-area students in health career programs are invited to apply for our enhanced learning program designed to give students in-depth knowledge and a diverse set of skills to ensure success.

Health & Medicine’s Chicago Area Health Education Center (Chicago AHEC) is part of the National AHEC Organization (NAO) developed by Congress in 1971 to recruit, train, and retain a health professions workforce committed to under-served populations. Locally, within the Illinois AHEC Network, the Chicago AHEC program provides a link between needed health resources and local communities.

Our Chicago AHEC Scholars are part of a national program designed to prepare students for the challenges and opportunities facing today’s health professions – and to ensure that they are effectively contributing as up-and-coming health professionals. AHEC Scholars make meaningful connections that can lead to and strengthen future employment. They network with students from a variety of health fields and meet local employers and learn about career opportunities in the area.

AHEC Scholars take part in a variety of opportunities, including job shadowing, career coaching, and virtual networking, and summer instiutes, immersion experiences, and community service-learning projects.
