Program Description

Through its initiatives, MSI AHEC aims to increase the numbers of minorities within the health care delivery system, and prepare these professionals to serve those communities that need it the most.

MSI AHEC exposes students from diverse backgrounds to a variety of health careers through hands-on programming. Students attain internships in clinical and non-clinical community health placements.
