Ahec Scholars Education program Durango

SWCAHEC offers a FREE program for students enrolled in health professions programs who are interested in learning more about rural or underserved healthcare populations. The program requires 40 hours of online modules (self-paced) that span across topics such as interprofessional education, practice transformation, behavioral health integration, health equity and current issues such as COVID 19.

These modules come primarily from University of Colorado and Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center. The program also requires 40 hours of experiential learning which can be counted from their existing program internship, practicum or clinical hours. Students can sign up for 1 or 2 year participation depending on where they are in their program. We also facilitate a monthly collaborative meeting for students to network and often have local speakers from healthcare or social service organizations. This nationally recognized program is a great addition for employment or nursing or graduate school applications.

Contact Heather Sorensen at heather.sorensen@swcahec.org for more information or submit an application to our website here https://formstack.io/F2DD3

AHEC Scholars is a national program, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration, that prepares students to serve rural and other medically underserved populations.

The pandemic presented a historic challenge to Coloradans and their institutions — lost jobs and insurance, lack of access to health care, soaring needs for mental health support.
How did Coloradans meet the challenge? The 2021 Colorado Health Access Survey will have some answers. The every-other-year survey is the state's leading source of data on the systemic factors that influence health. This year, it will provide the first detailed look at the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic in Colorado.
We invite you to join us online Wednesday, October 27, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. for the debut of the 2021 survey report.
