Alumni and Scholar Advisory Committee

Sea of hands

One of the Urban Service Track/AHEC Scholars Program’s greatest assets is its graduates. To date, more than 515 alumni are engaged in successful careers in medicine, dental medicine, nursing, pharmacy and social work. Our graduates continue to “pay it forward” by contributing to the program in countless ways: members of the Alumni Advisory Committee, mentors, preceptors, educators and generous donors to the alumni fund which supports professional development of current UST/AHEC Scholars.

To learn more about how you can be involved in the UST/AHEC Scholars Program, please contact Dariene DuBois-Plante.

Lessons from the Field: UST Alumni Voices
