The PA AHEC (Pennsylvania Area Health Education Center) Program is committed to becoming a national leader in the effort to enhance the health status of underserved communities. We intend to build on the established solid foundation through the cooperative efforts of regional AHECs by strengthening our partnership with the community, government, and educational agencies and institutions, and by expanding our collaboration with interdisciplinary health care provider groups throughout the state.
The Pennsylvania AHEC system began in 1994 and encompasses 7 regional AHEC centers statewide. The PA AHEC System is an integrated system that coordinates a statewide medical education and training network dedicated to improving the distribution and quality of Pennsylvania’s health professions workforce. The PA AHEC system is affiliated with a larger network of AHECs, the National AHEC Organization.
