AHEC activities are focused on the recruitment, training, and professional continuing education for those individuals from medically underserved areas that would like to be or are currently involved with health care education or professions. The overarching goal is to reduce health disparities by improving the quantity, quality, diversity, and distribution of the nation’s health care workforce.
As a requirement of the AHEC program, information about program participants have to be documented and submitted annually to Bureau of Health Workforce. Data will be kept private to the extent allowed by law and will be referenced periodically to evaluate the effectiveness of AHEC services and programs (under construction).
