Will you be earning a degree in Health Sciences? Internships can open doors to many career possibilities. Undergraduate students in our College Student Healthcare Internship Program (CSHIP) gain valuable work experience in community-based internships in our region.

What is AHEC?
Primary Goals of the Vermont AHEC Network:
- Strengthen Vermont’s health workforce development infrastructure through academic and community partnerships.
- Helping to train and develop a diverse healthcare workforce prepared to deliver culturally appropriate, high-quality team-based care with an emphasis on primary care for rural and underserved populations in Vermont.
Our Southern Vermont AHEC team continues to expand. We want to extend a hearty welcome to our newest member, Roberta (Berta) Enright, BA, MA, MS, as our Community Health Worker (CHW) Coordinator for southern Vermont. Berta will be working directly with SVTAHEC CHW Project Director Katina Cummings in supporting the building of a community health worker workforce to improve people’s health and provide equitable care across Vermont.
Here is the last of our tributes for National Nurses Week. Those stories shared by nurses have been inspirational, emotional, and life-affirming.
National Nurses Week continues, and we are pleased to share the story of Bonnie Hanley, MSN, RN-BC, CNE, Associate Professor of Nursing at Castleton University School of Nursing.
