Application for the Class of 2020 – 2021
Welcome! Thank you for your interest in the University of Cincinnati-College of Medicine AHEC Scholars program. The UC-COM AHEC Scholars program helps prepare interdisciplinary students to practice in urban and rural underserved areas. Through online and in-person classroom preparation, rural and urban clinical experiences, and specialized professional development opportunities, this co-curricular program provides students with the depth and breadth of knowledge needed to meet patients’ health care needs.
The UC-COM AHEC Scholars Program will supplement students' existing health professions programs. Each annual cohort of 15 students will be in the last two years of study that culminates in completion or graduation from a degree or certificate program. Incentives of $750 per year (paid in installments) will be given to students participating and completing all required education and activities as long as funding is available. Participation in the UC-COM AHEC Scholars program is in addition to your regular course load.
