Mission & Goals
To improve health by recruiting, educating, and retaining healthcare professionals for rural and medically underserved communities in eastern and southeastern Indiana.
- Pipeline high school and college students: we will increase the representation of individuals from under-represented minority, disadvantaged, and rural backgrounds in our region who are willing and able to pursue a health professions career.
- Health professions students: we will support health professions students in building the skills to deliver high quality patient-centered care in rural and medically underserved communities.
- AHEC Scholars Community Health Fellowship: we will improve health professions students' practice readiness and interprofessional skills so that they are prepared to deliver high quality team-centered care in rural and medically underserved communities across Indiana through participation in a two-year fellowship program.
- Practicing health professionals: we will improve practicing health professionals' skills and competencies necessary to develop, maintain, and improve access to quality health care to rural and medically underserved communities.
