Health Careers

In an effort to help alleviate the shortage of qualified healthcare professionals in Florida, Miami-Dade AHEC is committed to educating people on how to pursue a profession in the healthcare industry.

Beginning with K through 12th Graders, we provide mentoring to at-risk students, health career presentations and summer camps for students interested in health careers.  Pre-Professional health students are assisted through a variety of internship opportunities.  Current health professional students and clinicians are supported  through internship programs, clinical rotations in community clinics and job placement assistance.
