Collegiate Health Service Corps (CHSC)
The Collegiate Health Service Corps (CHSC) strives to improve access to health care by increasing the likelihood that participants who plan to pursue careers in primary healthcare return to work with medically underserved populations and apply to pipeline programs like the National Health Service Corps (NHSC). The program works towards these objectives by recruiting a diverse student population and provides them training and meaningful service learning experiences early in their educational careers. In return, communities receive high quality health and disease prevention education and basic health screenings that help foster trusting relationships with health care providers.
For each student who participates, our CHSC program increases awareness of various health related occupations, provides experience in the health care field, assists in building resumes specific to leadership opportunities, and increases awareness and capacity to develop cultural competency skills as future health care providers.
Collegiate Health Service Corps data is collected and managed through Eastern Connecticut AHEC’s MyCHSC database. The MyCHSC database is a centralized, online database which allows CHSC Coordinators to track participants and their service learning hours.
