The AHHE Mentorship Program


What is the AHHE Mentorship Program?

Founded in 2014, the Mentorship Program is the premier program of the Association of Hispanic Healthcare Association developing students to become healthcare leaders. Promising students receive structured mentoring from an experienced healthcare leader in addition to developing professional skills and attending workshops and industry events. The program is open to current undergraduate or graduate students interested in healthcare leadership including (but not limited to) healthcare administration, public health, and clinical professions. The program runs from January to June, with the deadline in December. The application link can be found on this page.
