Wisconsin Express

In partnership with communities across the state, AHEC has coordinated the award-winning Wisconsin Express program since the mid 1990s. This program gives health professions students a unique opportunity to become immersed in Wisconsin’s diverse communities and cultures, while they explore health care delivery and public health in medically underserved areas, learning with and from students in other disciplines.

The week-long program is held annually in mid-May at about a dozen regional sites, with selected additional offerings during Spring Break.

Community Health Internship Program (CHIP)

AHEC summer intern programs provide hands-on learning opportunities for students and assistance to local health departments.

Programs in each AHEC region across the state are somewhat different, but each has at its core a partnership with local health departments to develop research projects and provide mentoring for health professions students interested in an intensive summer experience in community health. The placement is 8 weeks during June and July.
