AHEC Career Enhancement Scholars (ACES)
Applications are due by September 15 every year
ACES is a year-long high school career preparation program that provides opportunities for students with a strong desire to pursue a career in health care. 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
