Across the nation, rural communities face challenges in recruiting and retaining health professionals. East Indiana Area Health Education Center (EI-AHEC) is creating and supporting strategies to secure a health professional workforce for the future of our region. EI-AHEC has a special focus on reaching underserved populations.
EI-AHEC serves 14 Indiana counties: Bartholomew, Dearborn, Decatur, Fayette, Franklin, Henry, Jennings, Jefferson, Ohio, Ripley, Rush, Switzerland, Union, and Wayne
We recruit students from the region into health professions with an emphasis on disadvantaged and underserved communities. These students are more likely to practice in underserved communities in the future. .
We develop and support community-based clinical rotations for health professions students. Students who are exposed to underserved communities are more likely to return to these communities to practice.
We work to provide continuing education and other services to support health professionals already practicing in our region. Our aim is ot enhance the ability of healthcare providers to continue practicing in our area and to continue providing high quality patient care.
Medical Scholars Academy Summer 2016 - in partnership with Margaret Mary Health, we are pleased to offer the Medical Scholars Academy summer program for high school students interested in health careers again in July 2016. See flyer below for details and download an application.
