Two IUPUC Master of Science in Nursing-Family Nurse Practitioner students, Susan Brandenburg (Indianapolis) and  Alicia Tembo (Columbus), have been selected for the Class of 2023 Indiana AHEC Scholars Program. The Indiana AHEC Scholars program is a part of a national initiative to prepare tomorrow’s health professionals to become leaders in interprofessional, transformative practice who serve those who need it the most.

“I’m very happy to see that Susan and Alicia have been accepted into the program. This experience will not only help them grow professionally as nurse practitioners, it will also provide them with the opportunity for personal growth in the process,” said Paige McDaniel, Interim Head of the Division of Health Sciences at IUPUC.

The competitive program is designed specifically for individuals who possess a strong drive to provide care to those living in rural and medically underserved communities across Indiana. Over the two-year program, AHEC Scholars complete didactic and experiential training opportunities with a focus on rural and urban health care and caring for underserved populations with emphasis on the integration of five core issues – behavioral health integration, cultural competency, interprofessional education, practice transformation, and social determinants of health into practice.
