The Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) is designed to allow students to shadow, volunteer, and explore the healthcare environment while completing a checklist of experiential learning experiences in their own time. Students will be assisted with finding placements at local healthcare organizations that will allow them to develop their skills, network with professionals, and solidify their interest in pursuing a career in Health Care. 

“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…”
–Onekadiona Phillips, Freshman, Charleston Southern University
