Mid-Carolina AHEC would like to extend a heartfelt thank you to Murdock Orthodontics for their donation to the Health Careers Program this past winter. Murdock Orthodontics is committed and passionate about supporting local charities within its communities. Both of the Murdock brothers participated in a similar program in high school and look at them today. They now have the opportunity to be role models to students and support healthcare leaders of tomorrow. To learn more about Murdock Orthodontics and their community outreach programs, go to www.murdockortho.com. Thank you for your support!
At South Carolina AHEC it is our mission to serve the state to ensure each and every community has the healthcare workforce and access it needs. In times like these, it’s even more important to support our healthcare professionals and the health workforce pipeline and, as the pandemic evolves, we are here for you. Just in the past couple of days we have: Assisted two universities in meeting requirements of their interprofessional education (IPE) curriculum by providing access to AHEC Scholars online programs Provided information about the Health Careers Program (HCP) modules to the SC Department of Education to list with their health sciences curriculum as they transition to online learning Adjusted student housing needs and protocols and assisted with relocating clinical placements while tracking new policies from many institutions Moved numerous live continuing professional development (CPD) events to webinars to help healthcare professionals maintain access to education
