Health Careers Summer Enrichment Program


SEP is an integrative summer internship program where students shadow, volunteer, and explore the healthcare environment. After facility approval, students complete a checklist of experience throughout the summer on their own time. The flexibility of the program allows students to enjoy their break while still developing as a professional. Completion of the Summer Enrichment Program awards students with the Upstate AHEC Internship Certificate.

“I have had such a great time this summer. I have also obtained tons of information. I can’t think of any better way that I could’ve spent my summer other than being in the AHEC program. I really would like to continue to be in this program next summer…”
