The Institute for Community and Rural Health is pleased to announce that
applications are now open for the new cohort of Rural Community Health
Scholars. West Virginia University students comprised two-thirds of the inaugural Scholars cohort,
and as a result, we are eager to welcome our next group of WVU health professionals.
As an overview, WV AHEC Rural Community Health Scholars (RCH Scholars)
is a two-year program available to 75 of West Virginia’s top health professions
students interested in rural health care across the state. Additionally,
RCH Scholars focuses on interprofessional education through clinical, didactic,
and community-based lenses, and emphasizes how each Scholar can create
change and reshape the status quo for health care in his/ her/their community.
