Students & Teachers

Catskill Hudson AHEC works with hospitals, healthcare organizations, schools and BOCES within our 11-county region to develop and support programs that expose youth to health careers and assist them through their studies to achieve the academic requirements for their chosen health profession.

To date, over two thousand medical, pre-medical, nursing and health professions students were placed with hundreds of teachers at community-based training sites. Tens of thousands of young people, ages 10-17, have received exposure to healthcare careers and health professionals through the fun and interactive activities of our health career youth programs.

If you are a student interested in learning more about a career in healthcare, or a teacher or preceptor looking to get involved in programs that expose our young people to healthcare professions, please contact us for more information.
