What’s Working?

Alaska’s AHEC focus on health disparities in rural, village and urban underserved areas of the state has been significant. Clinical rotations have immersed students from many health care disciplines in Alaska’s medical communities. Mini health academies, palliative and geriatric trainings, and special veterans’ education are some of the ways AHEC is reaching the broader community.


Our proactive solution, from Pipeline to Placement, is to ENGAGE Alaskans into health careers pathways, TRAIN students in practice settings, RECRUIT students into jobs in Alaska, and RETAIN a quality workforce.
