AHEC Scholars and Dr. Wiser

Welcome AHEC Scholars!

Your health profession program faculty will continue to serve as your primary point of contact for all curricular questions and concerns, including clinical site placement. The resources listed on this page represent additional resources available to enrolled AHEC Scholars.

AHEC Scholars Learning Platform

Sakai is the AHEC Scholars online learning and collaboration platform. Students will receive an email from the Education Coordinator to join. Hint: Once you are logged in, save the link in your 'Favorites' for easy access!

Within Sakai, students are able to connect with one another and with AHEC staff, access Journal Club information, on-demand didactic opportunities, complete required reporting and evaluation forms, and share experiences.

Regional Centers

Regional Center staff support students throughout program enrollment, regardless of where your academic curriculum takes you. All counties in Oregon are served by one of five regional Centers, and thus can offer students regionally specific information. Be sure to check out the Living and Working in Oregon forum on Sakai!

Additionally, each student will be assigned a Group on Sakai, once you or your program reports the location of your experiential training.  Your Group lets you know which Regional Center you have been assigned to for your Facilitated Discussion, which will be completed after finishing 40 hours of rural or urban underserved experiential activity. 

AHEC Scholars Enrollment
AHEC Scholars - Participants by Program

We are proud to have AHEC Scholars enrolled from four universities, representing nine programs! This graph shows our updated enrollment by school and program, including 88 students newly enrolled this year, and 71 graduated or soon-to-be graduated students.

On September 12th, we will hold our third annual AHEC Scholars meeting, which will be virtual this year. While we are sad not to see our AHEC Scholars in person, this virtual format increases accessibility for students who are spread out across the state.

Data collection from the AHEC Scholars program is covered under IRB# 18471. Please contact the Oregon AHEC Program Office for more information.
