AHEC Career Exploration 2019-11-13T06:30:47-07:00

Calling all High School Students!

The Southwestern Colorado Area Health Education Center Career Exploration Program (ACEP) has been created to inspire high school students in rural and underserved areas to become healthcare professionals. This program is comprised of learning experiences created and presented by SWCAHEC as well as community, university, and online programs that provide students with information about healthcare careers and some of the skills needed to be a healthcare professional.

The SWCAHEC ACEP Student Portfolio

The SWCAHEC ACEP Student Portfolio contains some of the skills that are essential to pursuing a career in healthcare. ACEP students will be responsible for tracking their progress toward these skills by recording events, coursework, and other learning experiences in this portfolio. SWCAHEC will offer a series of healthcare career workshops on every other Wednesday from 5:30-7:00 beginning on January 15, 2020.  Students are also welcome at all appropriate SWCAHEC trainings and workshops and staff will connect students with resources in the community that would build their portfolios. This is a pilot project for Spring 2020 and student and parent feedback is appreciated!
