APTR is proud to announce the 2018 class of Paul Ambrose Scholars. Forty students were selected from 32 academic health professions institutions representing medicine, dentistry, nursing, pharmacy, physical/occupational therapy, physician assistant, and public health disciplines. The scholars will attend the Public Health Leadership Symposium in Philadelphia, PA from April 9-10. A summary of each scholar's community project can be found in the 2018 Scholar Directory.

The Paul Ambrose Scholars Program exposes health professions students to influential public health professionals and prepares them to be leaders in addressing population health challenges at the national and community level.  

Since 2002, more than 600 students from over 220 academic institutions have become Paul Ambrose Scholars, equipped with leadership and organizational skills in public health education that can only be found outside of the classroom.
