At Hudson Mohawk AHEC, we support community-based experiential training of health profession students in medically underserved areas and job placement.
We do so by coordinating field placements, clinical rotations and job shadowing opportunities in rural and urban settings throughout our region. We also help recent graduates and professional seek opportunities to work in medically underserved areas through employment and loan repayment incentive programs.
