In conjunction with local partners, SOWEGA-AHEC develops and implements health careers awareness and recruitment initiatives to increase knowledge of health professions and career pathways for students and those seeking a healthcare career.
We visit schools and career centers throughout our 38 counties to provide literature and discussions on health careers, educational programs and requirements, job opportunities, healthcare trends and interactive games. Request a presentation from the Health Careers Coordinator.
AHEC Scholars is a multidisciplinary program that gives health professions students a unique opportunity to practice hands-on training, provide care in rural/underserved environments, work with other students, build their resumes and increase professional contacts. Set yourself apart and develop skills that will transform healthcare in Georgia.
We collaborate with schools and other organizations to conduct MICRO camps and intensive programs for students. These “intensive” programs offer a deeper exploration and expose students to a wide variety of healthcare careers via hands-on activities. Contact SOWEGA-AHEC for dates of upcoming intensive programs in your county.
We have curricula, lesson plans, activities, supporting materials, DVDs, videos, and games used by K-12, colleges, universities, DOLs, career centers, AHECs, and many other organizations throughout the U.S.
We are able to arrange shadowing experiences with nurses and many allied health professionals. Request an appointment.
