Area Health Education Center

Patti HeadshotWelcome to the Northeast Ohio Region III Area Health Education Center's website! We are excited to have you "surf" our website to see all the wonderful activities that our program offers in the northeast Ohio Region. Our Region III Area Health Education Center (AHEC) is unique in the way that our medical school serves four different consortium schools that offers a BS/MD program as well as those who enter directly into Northeast Ohio Medical University.

These four consortium universities; the University of Akron, Kent State University, Cleveland State University, and Youngstown State University, select students to receive their bachelor degree at their university and then they are automatically admitted into the Northeast Ohio Medical University to finish off their medical degree.

In addition, our AHEC program activities also include partnerships with Northeast Ohio Medical School’s Colleges of Pharmacy and Graduate Studies and other programs, such as the Master of Public Health, for clinical training opportunities in medically underserved areas.

See what our centers, Akron-Region Interprofessional, Canton Regional, and Eastern Ohio AHEC centers can offer you in the way of health careers recruitment, clinical training, and continuing education training programs in your area.

If you would like to personally talk to me about how our programs may benefit you, please feel free to call at 330-325-6584.

Warm regards,
Patricia (Patti) Thornborough, MS Ed.
