High school and college students in the Pee Dee region interested in applying for the Summer Internship Program for 2015 can get an early start this fall. The Summer Internship Program application will open in November instead of in February, as it has in the past.

 “Our hope is that more students will apply for this wonderful opportunity and that this change will help us refine the way we take selected students through all the required steps to get started with their internships,” says Health Careers Program Coordinator Larrissa Clavon.

More applicants applied for the 2014 Summer Internship Program than in 2013. Application numbers for 2015 are expected to be even higher with recruiting efforts being made on the regional high school and college levels, including South Carolina AHEC’s Bench2Bedside Program, and through work with community organizations such as the Workforce Investment Act Office of Darlington County School District.

The 2015 application can be downloaded online at https://www.peedeeahec.net/hcp/hcpforms.aspx.  The application process is competitive and students seriously considering health professions are encouraged to apply. The Summer Internship Program is a four to six week educational and work experience designed to help underrepresented minorities and disadvantaged high school and college students explore health professions in a healthcare facility.

To continue to be able to offer education to the professionals in their communities, the regional South Carolina AHEC centers quickly began transitioning scheduled continuing professional development programs from in-person events to webinars. Here are some brief highlights: Lowcountry AHEC worked with longtime instructor Francine Muscarella, LMSW, LCSW, to offer her already scheduled courses The Art of Leading and Are You Running Out of Time? as webinars to professionals statewide. The transition allowed a multidisciplinary group of attendees to still participate in learning opportunities without leaving their homes. “Huge thanks and shout out,” remarked one attendee, “to all those involved to take this from an in-person class to transition it on short notice to a webinar.” Likewise, Mid-Carolina AHEC cancelled all in-p
