Allegheny Health Network Young Scholars Program

Allegheny Health Network’s (AHN) Enterprise Equitable Health Institute (EEHI) is focused on supporting health equity in our communities by expanding access with a workforce that represents the communities we serve. We are holding ourselves accountable for creating change and establishing partnerships with trust and empathy to achieve optimal outcomes.

AHN Young Scholars is a 6-week summer program for students interested in a career in medicine. AHN supports students through middle school, high school, college, and medical school. The goal is for students to become doctors and practice in the Pittsburgh area where they grew up.

EEHI is pleased to partner with the following groups:

  • AHN Cardiovascular, Primary Care, and Medicine Institute
  • United Concordia Dental
  • Allegheny General Hospital
  • AHN’s Chill Project
  • Urban Pathways 6-12 Charter School
