AHEC Connect

AHEC Connect is a three-month mentorship program that matches undergraduate pre-medicine, pre-nursing, and pre-physical therapy students with current medical, nursing, and physical therapy students. Throughout the program, mentees gain insight from conversations with mentors, while current medical, nursing, and physical therapy students get to share their knowledge and experience to pre-students. This free program requires minimal time commitment but yields impactful results. The application closes on January 1, 2024.


Any current medical, nursing, or physical therapy student is welcome to apply to be a mentor. Throughout the program, mentors will be expected to contact their mentee by phone at least once per month for the duration of the program. Topics are provided to the mentors to help guide conversations; however, mentors can use their discretion in conversations as long as communications are appropriate, helpful, and honest. Mentors should expect to spend approximately one-hour per month communicating with their mentee. Phone meeting times are mutually determined by mentors and mentees. 

Any current undergraduate pre-medical, pre-nursing, or pre-physical therapy student is welcome to apply to be a mentee. Mentees will be contacted by their mentor the February,  March, and April for conversations via phone or Zoom.  Meeting times are mutually determined by mentors and mentees. Mentees agree to fully participate, ask questions, and be ready to learn. AHEC Connect is open to pre-med students throughout the South Central Kentucky service area, including Campbellsville University, Lindsey Wilson College, and Western Kentucky University.

The AHEC Connect application closes January 25, 2024.
