Who We Are

The Virginia AHEC Scholars Program recruits, trains, and supports a diverse group of students from across the Commonwealth. The Program seeks to create a multidisciplinary team of health professionals committed to both community service and the transformation of health care.

Students, selected by a competitive application process, participate in a two-year educational program with both didactic and experiential experiences. This course is the didactic component and will be paired with clinical experience in an underserved setting.

Each Scholar will receive a Virginia AHEC Scholars Certificate at the completion of the program. This certificate sets them apart from other students in an increasingly competitive environment. Selected scholars will also have the chance to meet leaders in health care and make connections with other participants, creating an invaluable network for their future careers in health care.
