The Maine Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Network enhances the quality of and access to health care among underserved populations.
We provide rural, interprofessional, community-based clinical training experiences for health professions students, encourage Maine youth and mid-career professionals to pursue health careers, support practicing health professionals with continuing education, and promote population and public health approaches to addressing current and emerging health issues.
The Maine AHEC Network is based on Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) AHEC core topics:
- Social Determinants of Health
- Cultural Competency
- Practice Transportation
- Interprofessional Education
- Behavioral Health Integration
- Emerging Topics (opioid use disorder, obesity, etc.)
The Maine AHEC Network is supported by funding from the Health Resources and Services Administration (U.S. Department of Health and Human Services), UNE, the Office of Minority Health, and the Finance Authority of Maine.
