Students came from across Michigan and represented the following academic institutions: Wayne State University College of Nursing, Wayne State University School of Medicine, Central Michigan University College of Medicine, WSU Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences and Ferris State University College of Pharmacy. A group of University of Michigan Social Work students graduated early from the AHEC Scholars Program in December 2022.
