AHEC Career Exploration Program

This is a free program that can be attended in person or virtually.

Calling all 9th, 10th, and 11th Grade Students!

• Get exposure to health careers
• Prepare for college
• Learn 21st century skills

AHEC Program has received funding from the Daniels Fund to enhance the successful Summer Health Careers Camp.

Beginning in September 2017, all six regional AHECs began a new initiative to enhance and build upon the current camp program, with the goal of engaging high school students to consider a career in the healthcare industry.

This FREE program is a great opportunity for students and their parents during the 2018/2019 school year, which will include 8 2-HR workshops from January to April to learn about different  career opportunities in the healthcare industry. After completing at least 7 of 8 workshops, the student will be eligible to attend the 2019 SWCAHEC Summer Health Careers Camp for FREE for hands-on experiences in healthcare careers!
