The ReConnect Gap-Year Fellowship program is, in fact, a workforce supply program that fits into the overall pipeline of all statewide AHEC programs. The objective of the ReConnect Gap-Year Fellowship is to help influence pre-health students to come back to a rural area after medical school to practice medicine. Another objective is to encourage rural clinics to pre-recruit students before they move on to medical school. The program aims to allow pre-health students to gain experience and empathize with an underserved population in a rural clinic while receiving a paycheck. The program targets students who are in their gap year(s) just after graduating from premedical school and while applying for graduate medical school.
