Project Details


AHEC Rural Health Professions Program (RHPP) FY21-22 AHEC Rural Health Professions Program (RHPP) FY22 - Renewal - 1 AHEC Rural Health Professions Program (RHPP) FY22 - Renewal - 1 The program goals of ASU Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation (ECONHI) include enhanced clinical experience working in key areas while completing primary care rotations that stimulate and cultivate students' interest in careers in rural/MUA primary care settings and in interprofessional teams. In doing so, students develop expertise and knowledge of the unique challenges of working in rural and underserved areas, while also increasing their understanding of the relevant health and access issues these populations face. In addition, the collaboration offers opportunities for scholarship, community-based projects, and support for interprofessional clinical experiences in the identified rural or MUAs. The project team will design the clinical experience to include placement in these designated areas, including support for and emphasis on mentorship. Students will be paired with two mentors; one clinical professional and one academic faculty familiar with the interprofessional AHEC Scholars Program. It is expected that this mentor relationship will further enhance the clinical experience through development of learning goals, collaborative care models, and assist students in expanding an awareness of issues surrounding health equity and health disparities. The goal will be to foster positive experiences through the clinical experience and mentorship, which will further encourage the fellow to remain in one of the AHEC areas upon graduation.
