AHEC Career Enhancement Scholars (ACES)


ACES was designed for students that are VERY interested in pursuing a health career.  The program is designed for multi-year participation.  The longer the student is involved, the more they get out of it and the better our relationship grows!


Students selected for the ACES program receive:

  • Portfolio to track activities

  • One-on-one career counseling session.

  • Networking with students from across the metro and other counties

  • Networking with health professionals

  • Visits to health profession training programs and schools

  • Leadership development

  • Volunteer opportunities

  • Letters of recommendation and more!


Students may also be selected for competitive programs such as University of Missouri Mini Medical School and Cerner summer interniships.  Applications are accepted year round and program runs September - May each year.


Cost is $40 for enrollment and $20 per workshop.  Workshops are held one Saturday a month through the academic year. Due to COVID workshops may be held virtually in 2020-21.
