The Southeast Area Health Education Center (SEAAHEC) launched the first in a series of 40 required hours of clinical training for the inaugural 2018-19 class of AHEC Scholars. On December 17, 2018, health professions students from six disciplines participated in SMART training at the Baptist Health Institute for Patient Safety, Medical Simulation, and Clinical Education in Montgomery, AL – led by Simulation Specialist Karla Davis, RN, BSN.
The training is the first in a series of Interprofessional Education (IPE) opportunities designed to equip students for career-ready, team-based practice upon graduation. The program is one of many offerings from the Health Resource Services Administration (HRSA) which also administers the National Health Service Corps, Nurse Corps, and other post-graduate programs designed to augment the primary care work force in rural and under-served areas.
The SEAAHEC is non-profit organization and is one of five regional Centers which comprise the Alabama Statewide AHEC Program – a HRSA - federally funded, workforce development program.
