MICI-AHEC wants to continue to have health professionals who are always current and aware of trends in the health care industry. These programs are designed to enhance clinical skills and help maintain professional certifications. Programs also focus on recruitment, placement, retention activities, and cultural competency components that address community and state health care workforce needs.
MICI - AHEC provides individual counseling for students and adults wanting to enter the healthcare industry. Many adults seeking jobs in the healthcare industry are already in the workforce. Mentors assist in the process of healthcare career exploration. Counselors ensure each individual receives adequate information to assist in making informed educational and/or career choices. Our staff helps find students’ areas of interest, schools and classes that meet schedule needs and break down barriers that otherwise prevent completion and success.
