Providing a benefit or incentive that encourages individuals to pursue a healthcare profession - addresses a barrier going into a healthcare profession


The ATSU Hometown Scholars Program is offered at A.T. Still University with the support of the National Association of Community Health Centers (NACHC). Community health centers can endorse individuals who have applied to A.T. Still University's medical school, dental schools and physician assistant program and who plan to practice in an underserved community after school. Community health center-endorsed applicants are fast-tracked in the admissions process. The Hometown Scholars Program is an initiative that helps community health centers employ more qualified, educated healthcare professionals.
