The WVU School of Medicine is a recipient of a HRSA Area Health Education Center (AHEC) grant. The primary objectives of the AHEC grant are to support community-based education for health professions students, provide continuing education for health professionals, and provide/support programs for students in grades 9-12 that prepares them for possible careers in the health professions. The emphasis is on programming for students and professionals in rural and underserved areas/sites. For more information about this grant, visit the WV AHEC website.

AHEC Survey and Learning Modules for health professions students:

As part of the AHEC evaluation, HRSA requests that all WVU students participating in rural or community-based rotations complete a brief survey at the end of their rotation. Students who complete the survey will be entered in a drawing to win $500. To increase their chance to win $500, students may complete a free, online WV AHEC Enhanced Learning Opportunity Module unit prior to or after completing their community-based rotation. There are six topics from which to choose: Interprofessional Education, Behavioral Health Integration, Social Determinants of Health, Cultural Competency, Practice Transformation, and Current and Emerging Health Issues. With the completion of one topic unit and the post-rotation survey, a student's name will be entered four times in a drawing to win $500. Students who choose to participate will need access to SOLE. To be added to the course and for questions, please contact Victoria Sanchez.
