Interested in Interprofessional Training? Consider the AHEC Scholars Program


The AHEC Scholars Program (ASP) is a national, innovative and interprofessional program for health profession students. This program is completed during the last 2 years of degree completion and is an opportunity for exposure to interdisciplinary didactic and community-based clinical/experiential training in rural and/or underserved areas. We are committed to increasing diversity in ASP, so students who are underrepresented minorities, from disadvantaged/rural backgrounds, and first-generation college students are strongly encouraged to apply!



There are two components to be completed over the two-year course:

  • · 40 hours of community-based clinical/experiential training in rural and/or underserved, per year; generally fulfilled by requirements of your discipline

  • · 40 hours of didactic education, which includes a combination of face-to-face and online training opportunities, per year

Value/Benefits

  • Earn a Maryland AHEC Scholar Certificate of Completion, signifying an advanced accomplishment in interprofessional education and skills (and setting them apart from their competition for jobs, advance degree programs, etc.)

  • Become an interprofessionally trained thought leader in their field and create an invaluable network of mentors and colleagues.

  • Work together with other disciplines, learning their roles and responsibilities.

  • Enhance their clinical knowledge about rural and underserved healthcare throughout Maryland.

For more information, contact Ms. Allison Robinson, MAHEC Associate Program Director, arobinson@som.umaryland.edu. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis until the program is full and it requires a 500-word personal statement and CV. The program state date for this upcoming cohort is July 1, 2022.
