Bronx-Westchester AHEC is honored to announce its joint partnership with the CUNY Institute for Health Equity. The AHEC Scholars Program is a supplemental program for current health profession students interested in gaining additional training and team based non-clinical experiences working with underserved populations.
AHEC Scholars will practice inter-professional collaboration and better position themselves to join a well-prepared diverse and culturally competent primary care workforce demonstrating team-based care as an element of practice transformation and achieving more effective patient outcomes. Each class of Scholars will reflect a diverse student body with students from disadvantaged backgrounds and underrepresented minorities.
