Health care workers often return to practice where they trained, and students learn from experience that it’s rewarding to work in underserved areas. That’s why AHEC connects young people, students and practicing professionals to training opportunities with minority and disadvantaged populations, in rural areas such as the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

“For my next step in my career path, I will be exploring what it means to be an out-patient, office based physician in a private practice in Easton, MD. And yes, my contact with AHEC will continue. This new office has had AHEC students in the past, and will again with my arrival.”

Helping a Generation

Training workshops emphasize the value of an interdisciplinary team approach to the assessment and treatment of older adults. Students participate in one or two-day workshops at selected facilities on the Eastern Shore.
