P-TECH is a new model for secondary education that trades the traditional classroom for “innovation spaces” through group collaboration and hands-on learning. Here, students take the lead role in their learning, choosing pathways to their careers and taking college-level, credit-bearing courses. P-TECH aims to look and function more like a hybrid between college and the workplace. The 4-6 year sequence emphasizes individualized pathways to completion, workplace experiences, mentorship, in-depth project-based learning, and real-world experiences.
NAHEC partners with colleges and rural healthcare providers to support the Rural Healthcare Immersion Program. Rural areas tend to lack widespread and accessible healthcare services in comparison to suburban and urban areas. This program promotes the local community to future healthcare providers.
MASH Camp, or the Medical Academy of Science and Health, is a fun and educational day camp for students to explore health careers. Students are exposed to a variety of health professions, covering everything from on-the-job-training to an advanced college degree.
Campers enjoy two to three days of fun and interaction at a local healthcare facility, where they will:
- Learn about a variety of health professions as viable career options;
- Learn about the educational requirements, skills, typical job duties, and personal qualities of successful health professionals and para-professionals; and
- Participate in interactive, hands-on workshops* that highlight the skills, equipment, technology, and resources used by health professionals.
The NYS AHEC Scholars Program is a two-year, interdisciplinary program with a defined set of clinical, didactic, and community-based training activities.
