“Being able to participate in training with these other health care fields really allowed me to get a different view of what currently affects our community from a health care perspective. By expanding my perspective and views will allow me to treat and assist my patients better and in a more holistic way. ”
“The AHEC Scholar Program is important because it gives you first-hand experience working in an inter-professional team before you join the working force. Interprofessional education is very important to help you learn the value of working as a team and listening to each professional’s opinion to optimize care for the patient.”
