AHCE participants receive the necessary information to pursue a College of Health Professions application process.
Lunch and any resource materials required to participate in the program will be provided at no cost to participants. Commitment to full attendance, including an orientation session and closing event, is required to participate.

Due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the VCU P.A.T.H.S. staff and partnering faculty will continue to follow the healthcare guidelines mandated by VCU in accordance with the Commonwealth of Virginia as we plan ahead for our 2023 summer programs. Therefore, various programming modalities may be used as necessary (i.e., in-person, virtual, or hybrid).
