 Who should apply: The Central AHEC’s 3 day per week summer “day-camp” is a career exploration program designed for high school students interested in careers in health who are also interested in medically underserved populations. Accepted students will be exposed to both while at one of UConn School of Medicine’s community based training programs, the UConn Migrant Farm Worker Clinic.

Brief Overview: During this opportunity with the University of Connecticut School of Medicine, High School students students accepted into this program will be trained and supervised by Central AHEC staff/chaperone at the UConn Migrant Farm Worker Clinic for one week during the summer. Participants will be exposed to different health care careers (medical, dental, physical therapy, nursing and more!) and by seeing health care students and clinicians “in action” at these clinics providing direct patient care to our target population, migrant and seasonal farm workers (and their dependents!) at farms across Connecticut. The sessions run Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings at the tobacco farms with Mondays as a day of orientation and/or training at UConn Health Center in Farmington, CT. The Migrant Farm Workers summer camp will begin at Central AHEC with an Orientation scheduled forJune 21, 2019, attendance is mandatory.

Role at the Clinic: High School Students accepted into the Central AHEC “Summer Camp” assist with this mobile clinic’s field set-up and breakdown, complete patient intake forms, and participate in taking triage and clinical vitals screenings with patients. Students may even be asked to shadow in medical teams interviewing patients during these “field” clinics!A


Applications are due by May 27, 2019. Notification of acceptance status will sent by June 7, 2019. Accepted participants will be assigned to a specific week of camp at this time and will be asked to send a one-time payment of $50 to Central AHEC by June 14, 2019. If payment is not made we reserve the right to offer the slot to another student on our camp wait list as these slots are in high demand.
