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 on-demand didactic opportunities, complete required reporting and evaluation forms, and share experiences.

Regional Centers

Regional Center staff support students throughout program participation, 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! 

If you would like assistance in connecting with regional centers during current or future rotations, please reach out to us at Regional staff are great resources that can guide you on things like best local hiking trails, ways to engage with the community, and insights on area employers.

Save the date: On September 21st, 2024, we will hold our Annual AHEC Scholars Event, which will be hybrid again this year. There will be an in-person option for staff and students in the Portland area, and viewing parties or individual viewing available via Webex.

For our 2023 event, we welcomed guest speakers to address opioid use disorder with their interprofessional discussion on "Out of Harm’s Way: Difficult Problems and Creative Solutions for Opioid Use Disorder.” AHEC Scholars and associated staff joined the event from locations across the country, while ~75 students and program staff enjoyed networking and lunch on the OHSU campus South Waterfront location.
