Regional AHEC Centers

Alaska's AHEC Program

The Alaska Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) are academic and community-based partnerships engaged in primary care workforce engagement, training and recruiting, and retaining activities to improve the distribution, diversity, supply and quality of healthcare personnel in Alaska. The Alaska AHEC program office (at UAA) contracts with six regional Centers to implement educational activities involving health professions and to expose students to primary care delivery in rural and/or underserved settings. In addition, AHECs work closely with state and local workforce investment boards to identify and address healthcare needs and shortages.
